The beer necessities

Work colleagues Kate and Luke are great friends, with obvious chemistry and compatibility. However, they are both involved with other people, and when the two couples decide to go camping together, the lines between romantic interest and platonic friendship brings about some interesting complications. Taking a standard plot from the arsenal of the romantic comedy, mumblecore pioneer Joe Swanberg has made a sharply observant drama about love and friendship that may prove to be his mainstream breakthrough.
