SXSW 2012 film review

complete coverage of SXSW Film 2012

Leave Me Like You Found Me

Director & Screenwriter: Adele Romanski

Big trees, broken hearts. The story of a lovesick couple’s breakup & makeup while camping in the wilds of California.

Cast: Megan Boone, David Nordstrom

(World Premiere)

Film Synopsis (from SXSW.com)

Who’S It For?: Fans of slow films that pay off in time. This is definitely not a date movie, nor the ideal movie to watch when binging on post break up self-loathing and/or ice cream.

Overall

Though it wasn’t given any awards recognition by SXSW this year, Adele Romanski’s Leave Me Like You Found Me is the winner of my unofficial annual “Blue Valentine Award,” for the way in which it uses conversations from my life’s (and yours, probably) script, and then beautifully realizes these moments with two raw performances. This powerful story »
