Golden Exits

Alex Ross Perry, USA 2017, 94’
Queen of Earth Her Smell

Nick (Adam Horowitz of the Beastie Boys) works as an archivist. When Naomi (Emily Browning), an attractive, somewhat lost intern from Australia, crosses the threshold of his studio, a romantic game ensues between the two, in which it will be difficult to distinguish between the winners and losers.

‘Golden Exits’ Alex Ross Perry remains boldly committed to uneasy characterization in this artful, challenging tapestry of Brooklyn disenchantment. (Variety)
