Movie Info

With no place to call home, 19-year-old Elena takes a job as a live-in aide. She finds herself thrust into the middle of a family in crisis: all the things that go on between a father, grandmother, mother, and cat. Eventually, Elena strikes something of a balance though... That is, until the prodigal son returns home. Placing fictional characters alongside real people, 'Exit Elena' is shot through with all the rough edges inherent to family life and home movie form - in short, it's a dark comedy.(c) Official Site

I liked the concept of Exit Elena more so than the execution.

Nathan Silver's film is a quiet and affecting micro-budgeted drama, its condensed frame evoking the claustrophobic feeling of the household it examines.
