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

Hipster: The Movie
26 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I got to see this film at my college with a Q&A session with the directors. They seem to be very nice people. Much of the audience was laughing and enjoying the film, but i was not. The problem I had with Gabi on the Roof in July was the direction of the story. The film floats around setting up plenty of different routes to take narratively, but it decides to instead backtrack and go in circles. I'm all for realism and lots of dialogue, but at some point in time you gotta use those words to progress the story. Nothing happens in this movie. People talk, people complain, and people talk some more. That's all that happens, along with relationship problems. Nothing is resolved, nothing is accomplished. Sam tries to sell his art, Gabbi is having sex, Sam complains about not having enough money for rent, Gabbi is having sex. It's just a continuous cycle of minor grievances that really aren't compelling nor interesting to keep my attention. And it ends on the same note it started with.

On the positive side, Lawrence Lavine, Sophia Tokal and others are very good actors.

4/10
