[6 Years] too often veers toward melodramatic overstatement, inspiring little empathy or understanding despite the committed performances of promising young leads Taissa Farmiga and Ben Rosenfield.

A melodrama benefitting from excellent performances but suffering from a too-obvious script.

[The two leads'] heartbreaking performances imbue this familiar Austin-set narrative with a fiery edge.

6 YEARS shows what happens when two well-intentioned lovers begin to fester.

Hannah Fidell has quickly become one of the faces to watch in independent film, her naturalistic style of filmmaking and ability to get the best of our her actors and shepherd improvised scenes creates characters and movies you want to root for.

The euphoria and anguish of first love has been captured in countless films, but few do it with the level of raw authenticity and intimacy as 6 Years.

Audience Reviews for 6 Years


Insipid tripe, 6 Years is a monotonous relationship drama. After being together for six years a young couple has their relationship tested and are forced into deciding whether or not to continue when their lives take separate paths. It's a little unconventional in that the relationship seems to be an abusive one that victimizes the boyfriend, who suffers physical injuries and is even arrested at one point do to his girlfriend's recklessness. Yet neither of them are bad people or want the relationship to end; which makes for a distinct lack of drama. Additionally, the performances aren't very good and the actors don't have much chemistry. Also, the directing is pretty mundane and there's no energy or passion in the score. Overly drab and dull, 6 Years is a poorly make film.

Hannah Fidell is still a fledgling in the world of Mumblecore, a genre that hasn't changed much since its inception in 2004/2005. This is only her second full length feature, after her breakthrough "A Teacher," but she is already proving why her voice is worth noting in the cacophony of angst that is indie filmmaking. The film was produced by the Duplass Brothers, famous for their own innovation and love of the genre. http://www.bluefairyblog.com/reviews/2015/10/1/6-years
