Sibling hostilities arise when reckless undergrad Gabi moves into her older brother Sam’s New York apartment for the summer. Among other things, Gabi runs around naked, doesn’t contribute to the rent and sets out to seduce her brother’s friend.
Citing both John Cassavetes and Mike Leigh as influences, Lawrence Michael Levine’s film is thus naturally both a dramatic and structural experiment. Driven by an expansive cast of a who’s-who of New York’s independent filmmaking talent, Gabi on the Roof in July is unpredictable, alive, and true.
