The lifelong dreams of becoming a successful artist at home in Chicago have begun to crumble around Olympia Welles. As the dust settles, she finds herself with a mounting pile of debt, an eviction notice, a dying mother and a best friend moving to New York. Now Felix, her partner in crime and love of her life, proposes a hand in marriage and asks her to start a new life in California. The path to modern day adulthood is daunting and Olympia needs to figure out how it all works.
This is one of my favorite Chicago films for the drone shots of downtown Chicago alone. I was curious about this film after Nina Metz reviewed it in The Chicago Tribune. I really related to not knowing where you are at in adulthood because regular milestones like marriage and buying a home doesn't apply, and even career wise, there's an entrepreneurial spirit and changing careers so instead of a lateral view, there's all sorts of roads in people's careers. I love how perfectly McKenzie Chinn (the writer and star) captured this.
