The movie, Coiro’s second collaboration with Kate Bosworth following “L!fe Happens,” is inspired by a set of audio tapes that Coiro made of her late grandmother.
“Here,” which screened last year at the Tribeca and Locarno Film Festivals, follows a young American writer (Bosworth) who finds herself at a crossroads when she accompanies her husband (Iddo Goldberg) on a business trip and stumbles into a romantic affair with a younger man, played by Jamie Blackley.

Even if one hasn't seen any of the films by director Kat Coiro, it's almost impossible to not admire her amazing rise in the past few years, creating two shorts and three features since 2010, beginning with her short "Idiots" and the premiere of her first feature length "L!fe Happens," at the 2011 Los Angeles Film Festival. Coiro is hardly a new face to Tribeca, her second film "While We Were Here," premiered at the festival just one year ago in 2012, but now she returns with her third full length feature "A Case of You," starring Justin Long, Evan Rachel Wood, and Peter Dinklage among others. What it's about: "'A Case Of You' is a romantic comedy written by Justin Long, Christian Long and Kier O'Donnell that centers on Sam (Justin Long) who admires Birdie (Evan Rachel Wood) from afar but doesn't have the self-confidence to approach her.
