Storyline

A portrait of young New York and the misguided hopefuls who can't afford to live there but do anyway, Gabi on the Roof in July is an ensemble comedy about ex-girlfriends, sibling rivalry and whipped cream in a city that's constantly in flux. Gabi, a rambunctious Oberlin undergrad, heads to New York City to spend the summer with her older brother, Sam, seeking solidarity in the wake of her parents' divorce. When she gets there, she finds Sam too busy juggling women and too irked by her provocative antics and almost constant nudity to give her the guidance she needs. In an effort to get Sam's attention, Gabi seduces his free-loving, freeloading college buddy, only to find she's in over her head. Written by Anonymous

Excellent film! One of the best I've seen in a while!
4 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was definitely the strongest independent film I've seen in a while. The performances, particularly Gabi and Sam, were amazing, incredibly natural and dynamic. What was really fresh and exciting about this film was how well it balanced a sense of authenticity with masterful storytelling.

What I find problematic about much of the current trend of post-collegiate naturalism is that the plots often drag. That's definitely NOT the case with this film, which has an intricate, but unforced, plot.

I highly recommend seeing this film to anybody with an interest in independent, literate cinema. Certainly, fans of Cassavetes, Eric Rohmer, or Woody Allen would find something to enjoy in this thoroughly engaging, thought provoking, incredible little film!
