Reporter Leigh (Kristen Bell) leaves her life as journalist in New York City to go back home to Connecticut. This is due, in part, to the fact that her most recent journalist endeavour, which she was passionate about, will not be published. On returning home she gets a job as a lifeguard at her old high school. This job is not too taxing an affair, unless your day dreaming. While there she tries to reconnect with family and friends, and she does this to varying degrees of success, she also mulls over of her life. Leigh is at the cusp of turning 30, yet she begins to connect with group of troubled teens and one person in particular, instead of with her peers. Her interaction leads to smoking pot with them, and engaging in a dangerous sexual relationship with a 16-year-old.

Unfortunately this movie only received a very limited cinematic release, which I am sure did not help the film reach a wider audience. Then the film was released via video on demand. I got to see it via cable TV recently and I felt it wasn't bad indie production and good narrative. That said a number of film critics were less than impressed, and a critic at Variety magazine commented `people will be interested for any but prurient reasons', which I thought was tad harsh to say. Yes there is sexual content, but it was no more or less what you would see on a `Game of Thrones' episode. This film will not be to everyone's tastes, but for those people who like indie films this is worth a look.

The only DVD release was for the American market and is therefore region one. However, Amazon UK are renting/buying via their streaming service.

This is an indie film about life without much plot. Leigh London (Kristen Bell) is an AP reporter who has become depressed with life. She wrote a story about a chained tiger cub living in the city apartment that dies. She sees herself in this role, as well as just about everyone else in the film fits the metaphor. People view themselves as developing while everyone else sees them as screw-ups.

Leigh moves back with her parents, and mom (Amy Madigan) would rather not have her there. She hangs out with old friends; Todd (Martin Starr) a gay art dealer and Mel (Mamie Gummer) who is now the vice principal. Mel's life is in a rut, her husband (Joshua Harto) doesn't fit in because he is too straight. Leigh becomes a lifeguard at the local apartment complex, however like the tiger, the title has a two-fold meaning.

The story slips into taboo areas such as smoking pot with minors...and having sex with them. There are lines that are crossed, i.e. "they are screw-ups" or the less family friendly phrase, but they don't see themselves as that because the transition is smooth and natural. The film is about how life and people are the same all over (except for Vermont).

Clearly this film is not for everyone. It opens like a Lifetime film with raindrops symbolizing sadness. It evolves into a film which would make you embarrassed to watch it with your kids. Indie lovers only, please.

Parental Guide: F-bomb, sex, male nudity. Drug use.

Enjoyable film! The case was mostly in French but the movie played fine in English without having to select the language.
