Life Just Is Review

Image for Life Just Is

Three university friends, including the cerebral-but-gloomy Pete (Jack Gordon), begin their graduate lives together in a London flat. Life, though, doesn't prove quite as simple as they'd hoped.


More interesting for its unconventional compositions than its musings on life, faith and romance, this is a decent debut by 28 year-old Alex Barrett. But, while it ably captures the anxieties of post-university limbo, the performances aren’t always as convincing.

Writer/director Barrett delivers a promising debut that pitches four believable characters into the euphoria and dismay of post-uni life.
