AFFECTIONS

Dir. Bridey Elliott, 2015

A comedy about isolation and loneliness, Affections follows a young woman, adrift, seeking intimacy in the most unlikely places.

This dreamy and understated character study follows Bridey, a young woman bored with her long-term relationship and looking for a change. She finds it in the form of a handsome vagabond and the two lost souls spend a day together at the beach where Bridey's desperation comes to a head. This funny and introspective investigation of tedium and longing is inspired by the great female performances of independent 1970s cinema.
