Filmmakers in person!
2012, Duncan Riddell, USA, 65 min.
With Levi Holloway, Marika Engelhardt
Those pricey cocktails just keep coming in this acutely drawn, made-in-Chicago portrait of a clutch of post-college twenty-somethings from a well-heeled northern suburb. Old relationships crash, hook-ups beckon, marriage is an open question, and moving in with the folks remains the eternal option. Privilege meets reality for Henry, Andy, James, Elizabeth, Sophie, and assorted friends stalled in neutral on the journey to adulthood as money, career satisfaction, and love prove elusive. HDCAM video. (BS)
