Dragonfly is must-see cinema!
20 September 2016 | by samschwartz-18238See all my reviews

I watched Dragonfly this Sunday when it screened in Chicago, and I have not stopped thinking about it. This is an amazing film, that will speak to you whatever your stage in life. At the end of the movie, I learned that it will soon be premiering on Amazon. I cannot wait to watch it again.

The story is beautifully acted, and feels very authentic. The lead, Cara Epstein, delivers a mesmerizing performance as Anna. In her adept hands, Anna is a fully realized character. The supporting characters are also quite strong, especially Jennifer Blagen as Anna's mom and David Greene as Anna's brother. What I loved about the film, was that the I really felt where the different characters are coming from. This is a testament to the amazing direction of Epstein and Romslo.

Dragonfly is the rare film that is able to balance humor with real issues (becoming an adult, caring for parents, finding love). Another special thing about the film was its setting in Minnesota. In this era of seeing depictions of the art-scene restricted to caricatures of Brooklyn or Silver Lake, it was refreshing to see a true representation of the art scene in Minneapolis both in the cinematography and the soundtrack.
