Relationships are hard enough as it is, but when men and women follow written and unwritten rules about love and commitment, it's a wonder that anyone gets married at all. That's the underlying theme of "6 Month Rule," a sharp, engaging new comedy about managing one's love life. This film is scheduled to screen at the Austin Film Festival on Friday, October 21. Writer/director Blayne Weaver stars as Tyler Watts, a bachelor who is not afraid of the single life. In Watts's opinion, no woman is so perfect that he can't get over her in six months. In the final days of a relationship, Watts slowly distances himself from his current girlfriend until the union quietly fades away. Alan (Martin Starr), Tyler's best friend, is exactly the opposite, suffering through a painful breakup with his fiancé.
