Movie Info

Will (David Call), an unemployed and aimless playboy living in Brooklyn, New York, has spent his 20's skating on easy charm from one casual, distant affair to the next. Noticing his friends' happiness as they gradually settle into steady jobs and committed relationships, Will decides to trade apathy for effort in order to find someone with whom he can start the next chapter of his life. Shot on 16mm film with artful direction and honest performances, Northeast is a vividly naturalistic portrayal of the pressures of an impending adulthood. -- (C) Tribeca

Critic Reviews for Northeast

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (2)

What little dialogue the film has is deliberately mundane, which can be a legitimate choice in this brand of minimalist filmmaking if it leads to something but here produces only unanswered questions.

[It has a] nearly complete disinterest in treating its character as anything but a blank figure on which the audience is called upon to project its own sense of alienation.

Northeast never finds enough direction, or gathers enough oomph, to leave a lasting impression.

As irritating as his exposition-less cinema vérité style is, Kohn's thematically autobiographical script builds to an emotional impression that is increasingly universal.

An intriguing character in search of a richer movie.
