A young woman Joey is in search of direction in her small town. A visit to an army recruiting office appears to provide a path, but when she meets and falls in love with Rayna that path diverges in ways that neither woman anticipates.
Family is an institution. Sometimes, you gotta break out. This is the story of how 17-year-old Candy finds the courage to walk away from everything she's ever known with the hope of discovering a better tomorrow.
Funny, vividly moving and tender; Never seen anything quite like it.
This movie resonated with me in a lot of ways.
It tickles the funny bone, while also vividly moving. It is a tender portrayal of the love shared within a Jewish family during mid-life coming-of-age experiences for the parents as well as their grown-up children.
I cannot say enough about this movie. It is like Woody Allen, but so much more so and with emotion. And very funny too, sometimes dark but other times hopeful. Never seen anything quite like it. Thought-provoking and full of real-life feeling.
I loved the Brooklyn and cityscape shots!
