An unofficial sequel to Byler’s Charlotte Sometimes, Tre similarly involves four people in a romantic roundelay, this time set among the children of California privilege. Twentysomething Tre (Cariaga) is either roguishly provocative or a dick, depending on whom you ask. With no job and no ambitions (his mother is a power player in Hollywood), he’s free to disrupt the relationship of his best friend, Gabe (McDowell), and Gabe’s fiancée, Kakela (Wolter). Is he driven by attraction to Kakela, or jealousy of Gabe, or something more complex? The emotions remain at a low simmer until they boil over a bit too fast in the final reel, but if you dig muted unhappiness, Byler’s your guy.
