Synopsis
While bombing at an improv comedy audition, diminutive and self-loathing Fisher falls hard for Georgia, a charming and statuesque free spirit. Despite their physical differences and emotional hesitations they share a memorable and revealing night of first impressions. About half of the film was improvised, and several of the scenes were shot at the Upright Citizens Brigade theater in Los Angeles, where the actors met in real life during an improv class. The romantic comedy features an original score by one of the actors who plays and sings in the band Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros.

Synopsis

This delicate and compelling film, set against the backdrop of a quiet seaside village in England, explores themes of friendship, grief and human vulnerability. A young isolated woman, Oona, returns to her childhood home as she grieves the loss of her artistic mother and deals with her belongings. Soon after she arrives she reaches out to Mani, a mysterious homeless man whom she invites to stay in her garden shed.

Despite the space between them, Oona and Mani gradually form an unusual and touching bond. With a great sense of calm and joy, we are reminded that anything in life is possible and that very often strange things can bring with them unexpected happiness.
