Despite an awkwardly jokey title, Now, Forager has charm, intelligence and a cool passion for its principled characters -- an appealing off-menu slice for hungry indie admirers.
Likeably unassuming, good-looking US indie may exert offbeat appeal to the foodie crowd.
A lack of dramatic force and zero chemistry between the leads make the film play like a compilation of episodes rather than a flowing narrative, but two sequences are inspired, and the rest has an earnest if underwhelming appeal.
Nothing much distinguishes this from any other relationship drama: the husband's climactic anecdote about a fungi's parasitic relationship to its host drives home the obvious.
"Now, Forager" is a uncompromising film about two people who don't deserve each other - but maybe nobody deserves either one of them.
Like the two characters, the film has trouble finding purchase, which yields a more acute feeling of dissatisfaction than was probably intended.
Despite its punning title, this is an earnest, absorbing drama set at the intersection of countercultural idealism and gastronomical sophistication.
Mushrooms, food and romance collide in Jason Cortlund and Julia Halperin's modestly charming indie debut.
Now, Forager beautifully depicts the connection between nature and our plates and bleakly portrays how obsession and rigidity can slowly smother a relationship.
The novelty of their industry aside, there's little to differentiate this from any other relationship-centered Amerindie.
A slow-food procedural, commendably devoted yet still underdone.
