Origin of the Species wins the Gold Medal for Best First Feature at the Houston International Film Festival.
Houston Chronicle

Netflix review:

"Six friends reunite for their annual get-together at a rambling summerhouse in New York's upscale Westchester County. What they hadn't figured on, however, are the emotional breakdowns that rudely interrupt their idyllic rest and relaxation as they begin plumbing the depths of their relationships and motivations. Amanda Peet, Jonathan LaPaglia and Michael Kelly star in this humorous and affecting film."
