Goodbye to All That

At the center of the film is Paul Schneider likeably playing the aloof and clumsy family man Otto Wall, who is suddenly ambushed by his wife with a request for separation and divorce. This comes as a surprise to Otto, who figured the lack of fighting was a sign that everything was fine, while his wife (Melanie Lynskey) sees it as a lack of passion. This is a defining character trait of Otto, whose soft-spoken passive nature carries into his attempts to re-enter the dating world. After using Facebook to discover that his wife had been cheating on him behind his back, Otto finds that the social media site is also a good way to reconnect with old flames. For some reason, they all seem primed and ready for casual sex relationships with Otto, in a comical middle-aged male fantasy.
