Unfortunately that left me feeling unfulfilled for what the rest of the film could have been.
It feels realistic and believable, almost to a fault - Teller and Woodley have strong enough chemistry and sell their relationship rather well (both the highs and lows) but it feels like something that belongs in a film with more of a plot than this rather meandering affair (which only seems to get serious about its developments in its second half).
