Some Days are Better Than Others is a poetic, character-driven feature-length film that asks why the good times slip by so fast while the hard times always seem so sticky. The film explores ideas of abundance, emptiness, human connection and abandonment while observing an interweaving web of awkward characters that maintain hope by inventing their own forms of communication and self-fulfillment. Written and directed by Matt McCormick and featuring Carrie Brownstein, James Mercer, Renee Roman Nose, and David Wodehouse, Some Days are Better Than Others is a sad valentine to the forgotten discards of a throwaway society, and a story about knowing when to hold on, and when to let go. —SXSW
Very indie. Oh, so indie. Incredibly indie. This is so indie, it hurts. A prequel to Portlandia, without the levity. If you think Miranda July is a great filmmaker, you would love this "poetic, character-driven feature-length film that asks why the good times slip by so fast while the hard times always seem so sticky". No, really.
