Dir. Sophie Brooks | Comedy | U.S.A. | 2017 | 90 min.
A young writer is forced to reflect on her first relationship when she inadvertently moves into her ex-boyfriend’s apartment building. Like a true New Yorker, she keeps the apartment. The move prompts her to try on many roles, including spy, hopeful lover, casual acquaintance, disgruntled neighbor, and friend. Zosia Mamet (Girls, The Kids Are All Right) assuredly captures all of these aspects and gives a charming and deeply moving performance as a woman caught between love and career. First-time writer-director Sophie Brooks presents a new take on the classic romantic comedy.
“An assured, laid-back debut and a good next move for Zosia Mamet.”
– John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter
