Brett Easton Ellis (of Below Zero fame) co=penned the screenplay. And one of the actresses from Twilight is in it as well. I saw one of the male leads circling the park yesterday. Never heard or seen him before seeing his photo of IMDB, but I recognized him right away!

Oh and most important, FILMED ON LOCATION IN POMONA.
I watched the "Politics of Love" recently on netflix, which was filmed in Lincoln Park and downtown a few years ago. Neither of these films are Oscar winners, but it's fun to have Hollywood come to Pomona. As long as they go back.
