| Unlikely love story with characters you'll root for!
In this incredible film, Zoe (played to perfection by Dana Pupkin) has a penchant for making words out of other words, and gleaning meaning from cryptic license plates. Unlikely to make human connections, she meets Marty (played equally well by Eric Hailey), a nearly homeless and soon-to-be unemployed recluse, in the underwear section of a Chicago department store, and they form a likely-to-fail relationship. While he makes her stronger, she makes him feel things he's obviously tucked away for years. Her new strength sends her to the National Scrabble Championships, but Marty's constitution starts to slip as he sees her devote herself to her passion for re-arranging letters. After you meet Zoe's family and peer into Marty's dark side, you'll root for these two lovable losers to stay together and stay out of Lake Michigan. It took me by surprise and unexpectedly moved me. Despite the obviously low budget and lack of stars, QWERTY proves the director's best work yet and a really beautiful love-letter to the city of Chicago and nerds all over the world. Definitely worth checking out!
