Overview

A despondent parole officer is aided in his struggle against domestic complacency by three criminals whose lives have gone off the rails in this ensemble comedy from first-time director Brian Jett. From the outside, Walter Dishman (David Denman) has a perfect life. But on the inside, he's slowly suffocating. Little does Walter realize that help can sometimes come when you least expect it. Having recently stolen more than her psychotic ex-boyfriend's heart, Darla DeMint (Gillian Jacobs) is on the run when she becomes Walter's latest assignment. And she's not the only lost-soul in need of some guidance: a lifelong criminal, cantankerous senior Artie Satz (Ed Asner) just isn't taken seriously by his would-be victims anymore, and in the wake of being convicted of insurance fraud, Ivy League educated doctor Kris Styles (Kevin Hart) finds himself forced to work a series of low-level jobs while his marriage crumbles. Somewhere between helping his troubled clients get back on their feet and reevaluating his own humdrum existence, Walter begins to look at his life, and his marriage, in a new light.

I loved this movie!!!Especially:1. the animated title sequence and scene transitions 2. the interesting use of color – particularly red3. the surprisingly good performances by comedic actors from The Office, Community, and The Big Bang Theory4. the recurring thread of the Santa Monica Pier5. the use and placement of the Other Lives song “Black Tables”Definitely worth watching!

Loved it!!! While most indie comedies are generally very quirky, they offer little substance. What I liked most about Let Go is that it did something different - weaving together four different story lines to illuminate larger themes. Really well done and wonderfully acted by an amazing ensemble cast. It's a real gem. Definitely one of my favorite films of the year!
