Stories can imbue our lives with meaning and order; they can also be our undoing. Fenton, a promising young writer, is reeling from the latter effect: he lost his girlfriend Jessie after The New Yorker published his thinly veiled story about her family. And when Fenton returns to New York after a year away he finds that time hasn’t healed the wound in his favour: Jessie is engaged to another man.
With its crack cast of newcomers and veterans—among them Chris Noth, Shiloh Fernandez and Mary-Louise Parker—Miami director Xavier Manrique’s feature debut navigates numerous emotional geometries with sophistication, wit and understated wisdom.
This film is also featured in the 2017 Film Festival’s Florida Focus Film Category.
The Director of Chronically Metropolitan, Xavier Manrique, will also be participating in the Masterclass: LEARN FROM THE BEST: AN OSCAR-WINNING MENTOR.
