A look at the lives and interactions of a group of friends living in New York.
I saw this movie at the Marfa Film Festival 2014 and really liked it. It depicts several characters reeling through life with little consideration. They are caught up with their immediate desires, mostly the desire to get away from themselves.
The thing that I found moving was the subtle and not so subtle ways in which several of them are able to glimpse how they’ve been living and begin to take the first small steps towards a different life. I felt that I recognized these characters from earlier stages of my own life, not in their specific behaviors, but in their compulsion to fill every moment of their lives with activity, meaningful or not.
