Sounds like another one of those Woody Allen movies, or, a more appropriate comparison, Don Roos (Bounce). Writer-director James Ryan's first feature is a fairly traditional indie "relationship" film about a weekend dad, Hank (Terry Kinney, The House of Mirth), coming to terms with his coming-of-age daughter of 13 years, Constance (Ellen Muth), and his perky young model girlfriend (Mili Avital, Polish Wedding).
