Andrew Bujalski's low-key, low-budget Austin-set drama is strangely engaging.

If you want an antidote to big, noisy, effects-driven studio movies, this laidback drama could be the answer. The protagonists are twin sisters (played by Tillie and Maggie Hatcher). One is paraplegic, runs a vintage clothing store and has a problematic business partner. The other is flaky, out of work and thinking of getting a job as a teacher. Bujalksi hones in on their lives with an anthropological relish.
