Maybe when he's Lex Luthor, Jesse Eisenberg will be able to stop his indie gems going straight to disc. Low-key without feeling slight, tough-edged but rarely losing its screwball sense of humour, Why Stop Now? deserved much more than two years of limbo after its Sundance premiere.
Eisenberg is the frazzled piano prodigy rushing to make it to his first big audition, get his junkie mum (Melissa Leo) into rehab, apologise to his girlfriend and run errands for Tracey Morgan’s inept drug dealer.
Phil Dorling and Ron Nyswaner’s smart, sharp little script dips and wobbles, but Eisenberg’s quick-fire performance keeps the dramedy lines blurring nicely.
