Growing old is inevitable, growing up is optional
A beautiful, fun, and poignant film that touchingly explores mid-twenties disillusionment and embracing our inner child. It raises questions about responsibility, fun, and where the lines blur. When do we suddenly realise that we have to grow up and what gets left behind? I loved the way it was shot and both protagonists give great performances: David Fetzer is irrefutably alluring as Ashley, and Ashly Burch's portrayal of Holly is tender, humorous, and haunting. Both characters are lovable and believable and leave you yearning for more. Surreal in parts, realist in others, Must Come Down is both beautiful and comic. I still can't guess as to the significance of the title, but, like the film, it gets you thinking.
