verdict
This dark comedy won Best 1st Screenplay Award at the Independent Spirits. I found it more sad than funny & not treading any new ground.
genre Comedy
synopsis 22-year-old Aura returns home to her artist mother’s TriBeCa loft with the following: a useless film theory degree, 357 hits on her Youtube page, a boyfriend who’s left her to find himself at Burning Man, a dying hamster, and her tail between her legs. Luckily, her trainwreck childhood best friend never left home, the restaurant down the block is hiring, and ill-advised romantic possibilities lurk around every corner.
