An elliptically-told account of a mostly ill-advised romance between a young film student (Honor Swinton Byrne, Tilda Swinton’s daughter) and an older, not-very-responsible man (Tom Burke) in the 80s. The film’s soft visual texture and lack of cell phones is strangely comforting, no matter the sometimes harsh events of the story. (full review 5/31)
