A college senior tries to win over a boy from her hometown while confronting love and family anxieties.


Why watch this film?

This independent film embraces the sensitivity of proposals like 'Frances Ha', putting its story in very everyday but sincere situations. The plot follows a girl who feels adrift, studying in her last week of college and desperate to keep the love of a boy, which leads her to face her amorous and family yearnings. Sometimes her attempts at naturalness seem a bit forced, but the presence and complexity of her protagonist, Kit Zauhar (who also directs, in her feature film debut), are magnetic enough to hold your attention.
