Katie is a serious documentary filmmaker. She's frustrated because she's about to hit 32, yet still can't find any highbrow work that would get her career going. For instance, her dream project is to make a documentary about the famous 20th century Russian writer and dissident Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn. Since no one wants to finance such project, she agrees to be a director for hire for TV producer Arlene, who gives her an assignment she couldn't hate more. She is to shoot a documentary series about the life of singles dating in a big city. Her friend and cameraman Spider, who has a crush on her, joins her. Their subject turns out to be Jed, a handsome self-centered guy completely oblivious to the proper dating etiquette. Every date he goes to, he inadvertently turns into a disaster, which makes for great television. Katie grows to like Jed and decides to try to help him become a better dater.
Elegant and funny story about a 31 y.o. female director, dating, television and Solzhenitsyn
It's a nice performed and filmed, and creatively directed story about a girl, who has had intention to make some boring documentary about Solzhenitsyn, and forced by life to do a series about dating for television instead. It's also about "work or love" dilemma. Similar title, that comes to mind, if to talk about mood or spirit of the film is "When Harry Met Sally". Will wait for DVD with this film and next movies by Lisa Kors -- she knows how to do good movies.
