Don't be thrown off by the name
I saw this at the world-premier at the San Jose Film Festival (Cinequest)
This movie was fantastic, the director did a great job of telling a love story about early millennial (think young 30s) woman with a bit of an existential identity crisis. She's living in NYC as a writer, surrounded by her more (society's version of) successful friends when she meets a guy whom she connects with.
The plot isn't the real point in this picture, it's the Linklater-esque conversations she has with her friends, lovers, roommates along the way that keeps the audience engaged. I found myself excited by the whimsical nature of her character and the endless possibilities of where she might go next.
There's also a really cool 3-minute fast forward scene in the middle that reminded me of Before Sunrise on speed.
The four of us that went were all millennials and we all loved it! I think we connected with this film more than the elderly in the audience because of the context. Definitely recommend this well crafted film. Kudos to the team for an entertaining, funny, introspective experience.
