During a single day in New York City, an investigative reporter struggles with her first day on the job, despite help from her misguided boss; a rebellious teen attempts to balance her feminist ideals with other desires; and a young man seeks to reconcile with his ex-girlfriend, even as her brother threatens revenge. Meanwhile, an avid music lover traverses the city in search of a rare record for his vinyl collection.
Shot entirely in 16mm (and screening in 35mm), PERSON TO PERSON effortlessly humanizes its characters, invoking an earnest realism in the performances of its ensemble cast: Michael Cera, Abbi Jacobson, Tavi Gevinson, Philip Baker Hall, George Sample III, and Bene Coopersmith, who came to prominence in Defa’s short film of the same name. Defa once again demonstrates his aptitude for honest storytelling as he explores the absurdity and challenges of forging human connections. (Synopsis from the Sundance Film Festival)
“A gentle summer breeze of a movie that’s set during an early fall day...(Defa) fits so many well-drawn and well-loved people inside an 84-minute movie that it’s easier to believe that the five boroughs could host several million more.” —David Erlich, Indiewire
