“Manhattan Romance” (dir. Tom O’Brien)
In this movie about making a movie, a TV commercial editor is consumed by his latest passion project: a documentary that examines the nature and variety of intimate relationships in New York City. Danny’s fascination with the details of others’ romance is juxtaposed with hilarity and heartbreak to the solitary nature of his own. This indie romantic comedy is a love letter to New York itself—and features standout performances from Katherine Waterston (the lead actress in Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming “Inherent Vice”), Caitlin FitzGerald (“Masters of Sex”) and Gaby Hoffmann (“Crystal Fairy,” “Girls”).
