Haunted by a traumatic history, photographer Kevin Wolfe (Christopher Denham) struggles to systematically forget all his bad memories, but erasing his past threatens to consume his future. Kevin is obsessed with finding a girl who can help him forget his unpleasant past. However, all his encounters with the opposite sex inevitably go afoul, creating more awkward experiences than he can cope with. As the rejections mount, Kevin's futile search for happiness and love becomes overwhelmingly turbulent, forcing him to take desperate measures. Shot in a variety of NYC locales, from Hell's Kitchen to Greenpoint, Forgetting the Girl is a gritty vision of the city and its denizens. The tightly-woven drama blends recollections with reality to craft an intense character study of the psychologically-scarred protagonist. As beautiful as it is dark, the tense narrative slowly boils under the surface until it unleashes an unsettling climax that will not be easily forgotten. Written by

What are you doing?
I was just on the other line with the suicide hotline. Yeah... they said I should do it.
Oh my God Jamie, are you okay?

As I write this there are 10 reviews. Typically when the count is this low the positive reviews are shills from the cast or production staff trying to drive traffic to the theaters or rental markets.
Assume this now, this movie is just terrible. Bone achingly slow and contrived, I was forced by an uncontrollable urge in my lizard brain to fast forward to the end to ease the boredom.
Ignore any review that promises "plot twists." There is one. One twist and it has no relevance to the story other than to make it more pathetic. I knew exactly what was going to happen.
When there are dozens or hundreds of reviews and the comments vary widely it simply means some got the premise and others it was lost on. I cannot see anyone who is not on Thorozine or other profound anti-psychotics enjoying this, just a bad, slow, predictable essay on pathetic psychosis.
Spend the two hours you would have on this sleeping,you will be far more entertained.
Better yet, take your dog to the park!
