This film was entirely improvised. There was no script, and the only things the actors and the crew had was a vague outline of the order of events that the director wanted to happen.
The ~6 IMDb rating is a real shame, I thought this was a great movie. Everything has a very organic and realistic feel to it, especially the dialogue, which is unsurprising given that it was entirely improvised. All the actors involved give fantastic performances, with Olivia Wilde probably at a career best here, but the standout is Jake Johnson, who is phenomenal as Luke. It's a simple and low-key story well told, and you could do a lot worse if you're looking for a relaxing comedy/drama that steers well clear of clichés (apart perhaps from the initial premise) and opts for substance rather than style.
Olivia Wilde is absolutely captivating in this.
