From the trailer this film looks like a student film that ran out of money. Cheap sets, cheap shots, bad acting and a series of weird close up montages of some woman —- the lead of “Rid Of Me” I am guessing. “Low Budget Mean Girls for Adults” does not really help. C’mon Tribeca, what happened to programming some interesting quality films instead of this junk. You guys are supposed to elevate indie cinema, not degrade it!
