MR. ROOSEVELT

 2017 / USA / Narrative

Comedienne Emily Martin moves to L.A. for a shot at stardom, leaving her old life and boyfriend behind in the Austin dust. Following the death of a semi-loved one, she’s forced to return to Texas and face the fact her ex has moved on with the help of Celeste, a pinterest board of perfection come to life. This new development sends Emily searching for a sense of self in the waning creative comfort of the city, a familiar weirdness she finds in kindred spirit/local indie rocker Jen. Does growing up mean no carbs and no fun? Or is there another way? A hilarious look at millennial malcontent (from fleeting viral video fame to #mimosas), the importance of female friendship and the ever tricky balance of life & love.
