30-something Rose (Greta Gerwig) is about to go off the deep end when she finds out of her husband's digressions. Actually, she goes on a bender with beer and donuts during a roadtrip. And just when she thought she's alone at a lighthouse, she finds out she isn't.
Of course, Boy might be a liar. He never exactly tells the truth, but we know he's from London and might very well be a gypsy boy or at least a true Bohemian wondering the world. And he has money.
Rose is full of bitterness, set out to destroy the woman who has slept with her husband, but also begins a journey of someone who needs to find herself, and she just might with Boy.
“What? Am I not attractive enough to be a male prostitute?”
There was so much I loved about this movie. Especially, Olly Alexander's performance and of course, his talent of banging out a tune on a little keyboard to finding a piano to sing with old timers. Oh, and I must not forget how he can be light on his feet when it comes to old dances, too.
Still Greta's Rose was so harsh. Yet, I'm sure it was meant to be. Since, that was initially the essences of the film, making her find herself, again. And I think the film accomplishes this. Still, I wanted more between Rose and Boy. Naturally, I wanted to see where Boy might go. As it was, he could have possibly been just a figment of her imagination.
STORYLINE: Reeling from her husband's affair, Rose collides with a marooned teenager in a boarded-up Delaware beach town.
