Interesting but unsatisfying film about infidelity.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that Nobody Walks is an interesting but lackluster drama (co-written by Girls' Lena Dunham) that has some mature themes, including infidelity. A teenage character flirts with a much older man and is uncomfortably objectified and verbally attacked by another. There's kissing/snuggling and a scene in which underwear is removed, but no nudity. Language includes liberal use of strong words like "bitch," "s--t," and "f--k"), and adults are shown smoking pot at a party where their kids are also guests.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about how Nobody Walks depicts marriage. Does it seem authentic? What challenges are presented? Why do you think Julie and Peter drift apart?
  • What do you think the movie's message is? Who is it targeted at?
  • Would you consider the characters role models? Why or why not?

Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: ...a self-important nightmare ... shallow script and boring situations. Perhaps that is the simplest way to sum up the film, boring. Offensively boring.

- Amanda Mae Meyncke,, Sunday, November 4, 2012

Rotten: This dreary independent drama is essentially an art-world soap opera, but without the melodramatic verve that makes some soap operas interesting.

- Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, Thursday, November 8, 2012

Fresh: If you allow yourself to drift with it, rather than get frustrated by all the non sequiturs, "Nobody Walks" becomes a more enjoyable film.

Typical well acted indie drama with pretty cinematography. Has many things it does well but a couple of the secondary plot points just didn't work for me.

It's a sub-par film and doesn't have much to it. touching on a subject that has been overly used in films it tends to drag along and just when you think it's getting good you lose interest. John Krasinski however does an amazing job. It does have a very independent and artistic feel that I appreciate but Not worth seeing in the theaters in my opinion.

I have no idea what the point of this movie was. There was no satisfying conclusion and a lot going on that was never resolved.
