Jerry and Marty have just bought a brand new house, and what better way to celebrate than by throwing a New Year's party. However, as the evening progresses, some threatening secrets surface that might jeopardize the course of their marriage and the lives of their closest friends. This universally significant evening unexpectedly alters the lives of twelve intertwining friends and evokes a provocative inspection into marriage, friendship and the bewildering possibilities of love. See how a seemingly conventional celebration can easily spiral out of control, making Surviving New Years a resolution in and of itself. Written by David Beatty

Great little gem
15 November 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Surviving New Year's" was an unexpected surprise: extremely realistic, wonderfully acted, and very well-directed - watching this little gem of a film is like being an fly on the wall at a fun-then-awkward new year's eve party... emotional and memorable. Hand-held documentary camera work adds to the realism, as well as the improvised style of dialogue. Although the film is brief (which makes it a perfect choice when short on time), it never feels rushed or abbreviated in any way. The director allowed his actors to take their time, while developing thoroughly rich relationships between the characters. Want to see more from these actors and director!
