This ensemble film stars writer-director Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother) as Sam, a 20-something writer who takes in an orphan boy named Rasheen who's been separated from his family. Radnor buries Rasheen's hard-luck story among throwaway storylines involving Sam's privileged, weak-minded friends who have predictable conversations about finding love, navigating commitment and how much better New York is than L.A. The suggestion that these matters are of equal importance to Rasheen's case is troubling, and the film is further muddied by the fact that Radnor doesn't seem aware of the uncomfortable juxtaposition.
