Review

A story of connection, family, the power of movies, and the power of the stories we tell ourselves, Emi Price's summer is captivating. She's just graduated from high school, has been working as set design intern for a movie studio for years, and has just gotten a big break and been asked to be the production designer for a small independent film. Emi has an eye for details, and she uses her expertise with objects and images to help narrate her story. At an estate sale, Emi and her friend Charlotte come into possession of a letter from a dead film legend that lead them on a quest, and ultimately to some new friends and realizations. There's a lot of disbelief to suspend, but if you just go with the story and the characters' emotions, you'll be glad you joined Emi on her journey.
