The Week That Girl Died

Unable to transcend its self-righteousness about the issues planted in the unconvincing narrative, this light drama about three friends periodically unites them at a restaurant, where they tell one another about their lives mainly to introduce flashbacks. One guy's interested in the waitress, but before she agrees to go out with him he gets involved in some pity sex that's supposed to teach him a lesson. Another manages to date a woman who works at a peep show, a story line that doesn't expose the intended hypocrisy, because he continues to apply society's double standard after he decides she's been victimized by it. The third guy's experiences with a deceitful woman he meets at a funeral are just unpredictable enough to suggest that this story line—about the value of family versus romantic love—may have been inspired by something other than a compulsion to make politically correct observations about heterosexual courtship. Sean Travis directed a screenplay by Rocco Iacovone.
