About the Movie

29-year-old assistant editor and aspiring writer Alice Harvey is funny, smart and emotionally self-destructive. Climbing the ranks at a notable publishing company, she struggles to write her own story, forever stymied by memories of her youthful relationship with her dad’s older best friend, Milan. After 15 years Milan and Alice's paths cross once again, forcing them to confront events that have long gone unaddressed.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: The director, Ms. Cohn, making her feature debut, wrote the script and handily keeps the story's many elements in motion. – Andy Webster, New York Times, Dec 10, 2015

Fresh: [The filmmakers] lend the film's overall impact the alert observational intelligence of a first-rate short story. – Dennis Harvey, Variety, Dec 4, 2015

Fresh: Cohn displays deep sympathy with her protagonist's intersecting emotional crises, scripting a narrative that's intensely perceptive without becoming mired in mawkishness. – Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter, Dec 4, 2015

Fresh: So unpretentious that it could be accused of lacking style or vigor, writer-director Marya Cohn's maturely conceived, Kickstarter-budgeted debut swaps genders on the more traditionally male-driven story of a stunted coming-of-age. – Aaron Hillis, Village Voice, Dec 8, 2015

Customer Reviews

Whats all the hype about?

Honestly, I think that most of the 5-star reviews on here are from Vancamp fans. The high ratings would not be explainable otherwise. It’s an okay movie, but for me too much of the plot felt too generic. The story itself and the story-telling were mediocre. There was no emotional depth in the characters and as a male, it was particularly difficult for me to relate to the main protagonist Alice. Overall, the movie just does not live up to the ratings.

Worth the watch

great film. Vancamp was great in the film. Would watch again.

Outstanding film

I loved this film. The characters were so well developed. The dialogue made me feel like I was right in the room with them. The writing is beautiful, and poignant.
