Definitely Worth Seeing

...especially if you like "relationship movies." I really enjoyed this film. I found the writing and plot to be quite clever. The acting too was excellent. Often indie romance films don't quite make it. They're filled with stereotypes and wind up being boring and predictable. Not "Take Care." In this film, a woman is immobilized by a broken arm and leg and is determined to be independent. At the same time, she needs help just to get some of the basics of daily living taken care of. Her well meaning but insufferable sister is there but clearly doesn't want to be. Her good friend gets sidetracked by her own problems. Then Frannie, the MC, remembers that she took care of her ex for two years while he had cancer. She calls upon him to repay the favor. OK, what happens between them is somewhat predictable, but how they get there is fun to watch, and very engaging.

Enjoyable.

Every single girl's greatest fear come true. Frannie is hurt in a car accident such that she has one leg broken and the opposite arm broken. Thus she has a very hard time taking care of herself. Sure she has a physical therapist coming by and a few helpers but she needs someone there 18-6. Who you going to call? Your ex. The description sounds odd. It is one reason I didn't watch it earlier. But there is a more detailed and reasonable explanation as to why she would choose her ex as opposed to say a nursing organization paid by her insurance. Devon, her ex, happens to have nothing to do. He just sold his company for nice profit and he can be available. He does, however, have a jealous girlfriend.

As would really happen, the two grow closer and Devon realizes a few things about why they broke up in the first place. Basically it was things going on with him and the process of helping her helps him to grow and learn a few things about himself that allows them to move forward. It can be slow in spots but overall entertaining.

Frannie guilts her ex into caring for her post auto accident.

Initial Tableau: Frannie has been in an auto accident. She broke an arm and a leg. She gets incomplete help from her sister and friends. After too much of that, she appeals to 'the devil'; that is, her ex, Devon. Devon contracted cancer some years back, and Frannie had cared for him for two years until he was cured. So she gives him a sufficient guilt trip...and he acquiesces. His new girlfriend is not exactly understanding.

Delineation of Conflicts: Frannie's friends do not trust Devon. Devon wants to get rid of the guilt debt. Devon's new girlfriend wants his fairly tenuous relationship with Frannie to end as soon as possible. Devon's feelings of gratitude are a bit limited, but Frannie's sense of being owed (big time) is even larger than she thought, especially when she expounds on all the things she did for him. Frannie and Devon get the opportunity to be honest with each other, which was not fun for them, but changes everything. As time progresses, Devon spends more, rather than less, time with Frannie. How is his new girlfriend going to take that?

Comments: I usually do not care for studies in awkwardness, and this is no exception. Still, the film has a beginning, a middle, and an end. The exposition of motivations was probably its strong point. At least this one made some sense.
