40th NW Filmmakers’ Fest Highlights: YOU MAKE ME FEEL SO YOUNG

You Make Me Feel So Young

Weintraub’s third feature exemplifies his intimate filmmaking style, with a minimalism reminiscent of Yasujiro¯ Ozu, Claire Denis, and many other auteurs of world cinema. Justine has uprooted her life to follow her boyfriend Zach as he pursues his own professional opportunities in a new place. Instead of intimacy and bliss, what follows her decision is a sense of alienation from the very man she sets out to join. As Zach’s work pressures mount, their relationship develops rifts, and Justine begins to explore her own creative endeavors. Structured as much by the information we are denied access to as it is by what is easily observable, SO YOUNG is a quiet contemplation of cracks in intimacy told through striking visual compositions. (77 mins.)
