Peter Moore Smith's FORGETTING THE GIRL is just coming up on our radar. An independent mystery/drama shot in NYC, the flick has been playing the festival circuit and generating very positive buzz, so it's our pleasure to show you an EXCLUSIVE clip from it; peep the video below and get pulled into the mystery...
Haunted by a traumatic history, photographer Kevin Wolfe struggles to systematically forget all his bad memories, but erasing his past threatens to consume his future. Kevin is obsessed with finding a girl who can help him forget his unpleasant past. However, all his encounters with the opposite sex inevitably go afoul, creating more awkward experiences than he can cope with. As the rejections mount, Kevinís futile search for happiness and love becomes overwhelmingly turbulent, forcing him to take desperate measures.
Shot in a variety of NYC locales, from Hellís Kitchen to Greenpoint, FORGETTING THE GIRL is a gritty vision of the city and its denizens. The tightly-woven drama blends recollections with reality to craft an intense character study of the psychologically-scarred protagonist. As beautiful as it is dark, the tense narrative slowly boils under the surface until it unleashes an unsettling climax that will not be easily forgotten.
FORGETTING THE GIRL was written by award-winning novelist Peter Moore Smith, directed by first-time director Nate Taylor, and stars Christopher Denham (SHUTTER ISLAND, CHARLIE WILSONíS WAR), Lindsay Beamish (SHORT BUS), Elizabeth Rice (Mad Men), and Anna Camp (The Good Wife, THE HELP).
