?Jay Shearer?s edgy comedic turn captures the raw underside of the urban experience?the wails in the night, whether from sirens that seem to come from everywhere, or the moans and groans from the apartment next door. In the end it?s very much a love story, but one that refuses to pull its punches. It will shake you even as it keeps you smiling.? Eugene Wildman
