I don’t think I can wait until the Spring for this movie.
Starring two Portland indie greats, Carrie Brownstein of Sleater Kinney and NPR blogging fame and James Mercer, head of the now almost controversial band The Shins, this movie follows two characters that seem to be stuck in neutral.
The debut full-length feature film by Matt McCormick looks incredibly beautiful as it shows how much a place or time can have a hold on a person. And, you know, this description from the website gives it more drama: it “asks why the good times slip by so fast while the difficult times seem so sticky. The film explores ideas of abundance, emptiness, human connection and abandonment while observing an interweaving web of awkward characters who maintain hope by inventing their own forms of communication and self-fulfillment.”
It is also gives mad props to Portland. I agree with Brad Frenette – “Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Halifax, Calgary – let’s do this.”
