One of 2017’s biggest independent success stories, LOVING VINCENT has dazzled critics and audiences alike. Billed as the world’s first fully oil-painted feature film, LOVING VINCENT employed more than 125 artists working over a period of six years to hand-paint more than 65,000 frames of film in an animation style modeled on the artwork of Vincent van Gogh. Drawing on van Gogh’s masterworks and personal letters, the film tells the story of the artist’s life and mysterious death in a way never before seen. The motion-captured and voice cast includes Saoirse Ronan, Chris O’Dowd, Helen McCrory, Douglas Booth and Aidan Turner.

Returning to New York after an extended stint in London, artistically unfulfilled writer Diana (Mamet) moves into the perfect apartment while earning her keep by working at a bridal shop. Advising her are her free-spirited widowed landlady Amy, and kooky best friend Gabby. Diana thinks she has made a new start, until realizing her downstairs neighbor is her teddy bear-like old flame, the vulnerable and aggrieved Ben (Matthew Shear), whose heart she broke. Like a true New Yorker, she keeps the apartment, despite the awkward arrangement. As the estranged couple attempts to navigate cordial not-so-cohabitation and their knotty feelings, first-time writer-director Sophie Brooks flashes back to the early bloom of their courtship, the question of what went wrong hanging over every scene. This quirky and easygoing millennial love story features a stellar cast, led by Mamet and Shear, and supported by indie stalwart Deirdre O’Connell, as well as newcomers Sarah Ramos and Diana Irvine.
A fresh take on an oft-told girl-meets-boy story, THE BOY DOWNSTAIRS offers a touching and lightly comic contemplation of modern relationships, life choices and the price of independence and freedom.
