Time Out says

Victor Nunez (Ruby in Paradise, Ulee’s Gold) is known for his understated dramas of everyday life on Florida’s Gulf Coast. But the line between understatement and listlessness is a thin one, and Nunez crosses it in this long-undistributed feature. Sonny (Olyphant), a small-time drug dealer released from prison early, wants to collect the $200,000 that his confederates owe him. Meanwhile, he shakes up the settled lives of his friend Dave (Brolin), a cop, and Dave’s restless wife, Ann (Wynter). Yet there’s no crackle of suspense or sexual tension; we may be in the steamy Panhandle, but these people barely break a sweat. (Now playing; IFC Center.)—Tom Beer
