How did I miss this? Did you all know about it but me?

It starred Tatum O'Neal, and it has to do with our humdrum lives, as
Tatum explained in an interview:

"It's called 'The Technical Writer,' and it's about an agoraphobic
reclusive technical writer who ... it's sort of about him and this
married couple that moves in to the building that he lives in, and sort
of makes this pact to draw him out of his basement and into a threesome
in their marriage."

Happens to me all the time. You?


I've been trying to catch up with this movie for awhile, but it doesn't
seem to be out on DVD. Since you've seen it, how realistic a picture
does it paint of people in our profession?
