Brit director Alex Barrett's dialogue-driven debut follows four believable, if none-too-compelling London uni grads across a week, as they stew over growing pains and romantic dilemmas (Jay grapples with her new relationship, while Tom and Claire negotiate a growing attraction).

But pretensions toward Scandinavian arthouse territory (one character reads existential philosophy and is tormented by visions of St Francis) sit awkwardly.
