Stefania reaches an existential crisis, amidst the stresses at home, at work, and in her memories. Her life and that of her hapless husband turn when they take in a charming and mysterious traveler, a gentle wanderer on his own quest.
I saw this at the world-premier at the San Jose Film Festival
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.
