SF Emo Flick Delievers on its Own Terms

Part near-miss love story, part social commentary and part contemplative road trip through the streets of San Francisco, Barry Jenkins' debut feature, "Medicine for Melancholy," is so subtle and subdued that it nearly undercuts itself. I'd describe it, in fact, as a film that doesn't quite work -- but the way it doesn't work is so distinctive and so interesting that it marks Jenkins as an exciting new face on the American indie scene.
