Storyline

Haunted by a traumatic history, photographer Kevin Wolfe (Christopher Denham) struggles to systematically forget all his bad memories, but erasing his past threatens to consume his future. Kevin is obsessed with finding a girl who can help him forget his unpleasant past. However, all his encounters with the opposite sex inevitably go afoul, creating more awkward experiences than he can cope with. As the rejections mount, Kevin's futile search for happiness and love becomes overwhelmingly turbulent, forcing him to take desperate measures. Shot in a variety of NYC locales, from Hell's Kitchen to Greenpoint, Forgetting the Girl is a gritty vision of the city and its denizens. The tightly-woven drama blends recollections with reality to craft an intense character study of the psychologically-scarred protagonist. As beautiful as it is dark, the tense narrative slowly boils under the surface until it unleashes an unsettling climax that will not be easily forgotten. Written by FTG

Why?
3 February 2019 | by maximovlESee all my reviews

I don't see the point. How is this entertaining? How did anyone manage to convince anyone else, let alone a whole movie crew to make this? How did those aspiring actors and actress decide this was a good career move?

Maybe I missed the point. Maybe I'm just happy living my life not wanting to understand what it's like to be sick in the head. But I definitely wish I hadn't wasted those two hours of my life. This movie I definitely want to forget.
