Through his experiences with his friends, coworkers, and a kindling relationship, Crispin Learns to embrace his higher ambitions.
A refreshing and well crafted coming of age movie like this is just what we need. With this being Jay Salahi's feature debut, you can already see a very nuanced and measured writer/director who knows the cinematic language incredibly well and is a fan himself. Names like Richard Linklater and Steven Spielberg come to mind when I think of the feeling and look of this movie. Also amazing performances by the lead and co-writer Todd Knaak as well as his incredible female counter part Annika Foster. Shout out to all the supporting cast as well because you can see the director knew that a movie can live and die by its supporting players. A must see which I would strongly recommend anyone to check out. Can't wait to see what Jay Salahi does next!
