Storyline

College student Ella is completely focused on her ambiguously romantic relationship with her dorm-mate, Chris. She is so consumed by trying to understand his behavior that she's neglecting the screenplay she is supposed to write in order to graduate. When she does sit down to work on the script, her increasingly awkward social life bleeds onto the page and her work begins to express her true feelings about her own situation. Written by anonymous

so enjoyable, such a treasure
6 January 2019 | by vandwedgeSee all my reviews

When you see enough movies, you start to get bored of them, and especially of The Formula. Then you come across something like this and it's such a breath of fresh air. Such subtle and understated wit, such an immersive and palpable environment and characters. You feel everything the movie wants you to feel. Nobody but Lena Dunham could have made this.
