About the Movie

Thrown out of her New York City apartment, Natalia, a 25-year-old hot mess, relies on the kindness of friends and strangers. Seemingly unaware of the havoc she wreaks, she skips from one place to another, including her best friend's, where she crashes a holiday meal and seduces the best friend's socially inept brother. Natalia ends up staying at a shelter run by genuinely good Maury, who takes an interest in making her life better - but life is not that simple, and tragedy ensues. With a menagerie of New York characters, set against the backdrop of a homeless shelter, a religious household, and the cacophonous streets of New York, Soft in the Head is a look at how easy it is to lose one’s head in the big city, particularly for those already lost.

Fresh: Surprising, challenging, and never less than thrilling. – Calum Marsh, Village Voice, Apr 16, 2014

Fresh: Nathan Silver's raucous, disturbing new film is a shrewdly conceived yet emotionally unhinged blend of uproarious situations and devastating outcomes. – Richard Brody, New Yorker, Sep 16, 2013

Rotten: "Soft in the Head'' is drab, ramshackle stuff - up in everyone's face, and finding very little there. – Farran Smith Nehme, New York Post, Apr 17, 2014

Soft in the Head is anything but soft

Nathan Silver creates a fully realized chaotic, messy and unpredictable world that all but comes totally unhinged. Although the intention seems unfocused, he approaches his two primary characters in such with such steadfast commitment that lack of narrative focus actually ends up being an asset. The movie is reminiscent of a 1970's rambling experimental film. The difference is is that the whole film is so well contained. An unexpected and riveting study of madness that is only silenced in the film's final moments.
