At Home By Myself... With You (2010)

11 July 2010 7:16 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

I don't know what Canadian filmmakers eat for breakfast, but they seem to excel in making romantic comedies. These are the first ones that come to my mind: Young People Fucking, Love and Magnets and Dodging the Clock. Now, comes Kris Booth's At Home by Myself... with You, a smart film that combines comedy and drama.

Meet Romy Scott (Kristin Booth), a woman who has developed some phobias because of traumatic events in childhood and adolescence. She's afraid of the storm, getting outside, kissing, lobsters and opening boxes. As a result of that, she's never left her apartment since she was 24 years old. In order to pay her bills, this woman from Toronto works in her apartment as a self-employed travel agent. Moreover, Romy seeks the help of either of her neighbours - Erin (Shauna MacDonald) and Bessie (Rosemary Dunsmore) - to perform tasks like opening boxes for her. »

Review of "The Baby Formula"

4 April 2010 11:35 PM, PDT | AfterEllen.com | See recent AfterEllen.com news »

Lesbian pregnancy is one of the queer community’s time-honored clichés. The subject (and the stereotype) has been covered in everything from The L Word to a glut of so-so Lgbt films (see: Tick Tock Lullaby, Goldfish Memory) to mainstream TV’s favorite “very special episodes.”

It was therefore almost shocking to find one of the most original, inventive and entertaining lesbian films of recent days in The Baby Formula. While premised on a lesbian pregnancy, the film is really about parenthood, family, and, more broadly, love.

Framed realistically (with just a pinch of sci-fi speculation tossed in), with truly excellent performances by both leads and the strong ensemble cast, it deserves a place on every queer parent’s watch list.

We begin with a close-up shot of two women snuggling on a porch. A documentary director and her camera crew look on, rapt. “Athena wants to have my baby, »

'At Home by Myself... with You' Comes to The Movie Network

15 March 2010 5:00 AM, PDT | The Cultural Post | See recent The Cultural Post news »

You heard that At Home by Myself... with You unfortunately had a theatrical limited to Toronto thanks to most of Canada's bunch of culturally colonialized owners of movie theatres. If you didn't have the chance to see this indie film from Kris Booth in Toronto, you can catch it on The Movie Network (or its affiliated channels) provided that you have it in your cable package.

Synopsis:

Romy Scott (Kristin Booth) is afraid of lobsters, closed boxes, kissing, and storms. But her biggest fear is of going outside because every time she does, something bad happens. Choosing not to go outside ever again, Romy constructs a new life inside her apartment and figures out how to negotiate her debilitating fears by using the help of her close acquaintances. But when her most important helper – an old lady (Rosemary Dunsmore) who lives across the hall – kicks the bucket, Romy is suddenly »
