Storyline

Ashley is in his late-twenties, Holly is in her early-twenties. They're both very much lost in their individual quarter-life crises. Ashley quit his job to travel in search of clarity. He ventures to his childhood home with plans of breaking-and-entering for the nostalgic rush. Along the way he meets Holly, who, after a short-lived relationship with her restaurant manager, also finds herself jobless and aimless. The film chronicles Holly and Ashley's brief, odd, hysterical commiseration as grown-up children stumbling through life's final bout of growing pains. Written by David Fetzer and Kenny Riches

Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional
31 January 2013 | by (Brighton, UK) – See all my reviews

A beautiful, fun, and poignant film that touchingly explores mid-twenties disillusionment and embracing our inner child. It raises questions about responsibility, fun, and where the lines blur. When do we suddenly realise that we have to grow up and what gets left behind? I loved the way it was shot and both protagonists give great performances: David Fetzer is irrefutably alluring as Ashley, and Ashly Burch's portrayal of Holly is tender, humorous, and haunting. Both characters are lovable and believable and leave you yearning for more. Surreal in parts, realist in others, Must Come Down is both beautiful and comic. I still can't guess as to the significance of the title, but, like the film, it gets you thinking.
