A French romantic follows his dream girl to NYC, but a weekend of white lies, one-night-stands and tangled love triangles prove infatuation and romance are not what they seem. Featuring indie darling Greta Gerwig.
Just saw this incredibly dynamic, kinetically charged film at MethodFest and it really shook me up. Perhaps partly because I aspire to this level of film-making, perhaps partly because it's one of the most honest, gripping and fiercely performed films I've seen in years -- I just lost myself in its tonal poetry, sexual urgency and cathartic danger.
Ry Russo-Young was not only able to assemble a sparkling, freshly defiant cast -- but make what I would call a "complete" film --- the type of film that can only be created by a unique filmmaker with a strong, singular vision. The bombastic ride she takes us with with her lead actress (Stella Schnabel in a gut-wrenching, breakout performance) is like a tapestry of love, sex, deceit, failure and life.... always life, brimming on the streets of New York, in the audition rooms of pretentious theatre directors, in the heartbreak of a girl so sure of herself, she can't realize how broken she very well might be. See it, request it, watch it. WPS
