Movie Info

Haunted by a traumatic history, photographer Kevin Wolfe struggles to systematically forget all his bad memories, but erasing his past threatens to consume his future. Kevin is obsessed with finding a girl who can help him forget his unpleasant past. However, all his encounters with the opposite sex inevitably go afoul, creating more awkward experiences than he can cope with. As the rejections mount, Kevin's futile search for happiness and love becomes overwhelmingly turbulent, forcing him to take desperate measures. Shot in a variety of NYC locales, from Hell's Kitchen to Greenpoint, Forgetting the Girl is a gritty vision of the city and its denizens. The tightly-woven thriller blends recollections with reality to craft an intense character study of the psychologically-scarred protagonist. As beautiful as it is dark, the tense narrative slowly boils under the surface until it unleashes an unsettling climax that will not be easily forgotten.(c) Official Site

  • The frequent use of direct-address narration feels too much like a fiction writer's device, however much it wants to be a hook.

  • Written with a poet's ear and directed with an artist's eye ...

  • Thanks to some well-drawn characters and tight casting, including Anna Camp and Lindsay Beamish as an exceptionally troubled makeup artist, Taylor overcomes the script's minor implausibilities.

  • Surprising, clever and twisted with a convincingly sweet and creepy performance by Christopher Denham.

  • Forgetting The Girl...has nothing to offer apart from misdirection. It merely transforms from one kind of lousy movie into another kind of lousy movie.

    Very well acted film. Story is of a young photographer in New York City trying to forget the women he's photographed and that have touched his life. His assistant is hopelessly in love with him but he's blind to it. Shocking twist to the story towards the end. Lots of good dialogue, not much action but pretty decent nonetheless.
