Martine, a 23-year-old artist from New York, arrives in Los Angeles to stay in the pool house of a family living in the hip and hilly community of Silver Lake. Peter, the father, has agreed to help Martine complete sound design on her art film as a favor to his wife. Martine innocently enters the seemingly idyllic life of this open-minded family with two kids and a relaxed Southern California vibe. Like a bolt of lightning, her arrival sparks a surge of energy that awakens suppressed impulses in everyone and forces them to confront their own fears and desires.
"Tough and tender, weaving its web of interrelationships, Nobody Walks acutely outlines the invisible frequencies that pass between people"
"Subtle, smart, sexually charged"
“One of the year’s best American films.”
Exquisitely orchestrated by Ry Russo-Young and cowritten by Lena Dunham (TINY FURNITURE, GIRLS), this potent charting of inner urges and sufferings links characters in an intricate dance of lust, denial, and deception. Despite their issues, each comes across as fundamentally human, urging viewers to appraise the characters' morality by evaluating their own motives. Sexually charged and rigorously composed, Nobody Walks boasts an impressive cast who deliver incisive performances in this absorbing tale.
Starring Olivia Thirlby (JUNO), John Krasinski (THE OFFICE), ROSEMARIE DEWITT (RACHEL'S GETTING MARRIED), Justin Kirk (WEEDS), and Dylan McDermott (AMERICAN HORROR STORY).
Directed by Ry Russo-Young. Rated R.
