Girls' and Frances Ha’s recent portraits of young women's confusion and co-dependency have made a phenomenon out of a brand of New York neurosis that is distinctly female. But almost 40 years before these works, debut director Claudia Weill wrote and directed this woefully neglected gem about Susan, a struggling photographer who is forced to fend for herself when her roommate Anne decides to get married.
Following a recent special presentation at the Birds Eye View Film Festival, ICA and I am Dora are delighted to present the film on an extended run. One not to be missed.
