Movie Info

Thrown out of her New York City apartment, Natalia, a 25-year-old hot mess, relies on the kindness of friends and strangers. Seemingly unaware of the havoc she wreaks, she skips from one place to another, including her best friend's, where she crashes a holiday meal and seduces the best friend's socially inept brother. Natalia ends up staying at a shelter run by genuinely good Maury, who takes an interest in making her life better -- but life is not that simple, and tragedy ensues. With a menagerie of New York characters, set against the backdrop of a homeless shelter, a religious household, and the cacophonous streets of New York, SOFT IN THE HEAD is a look at how easy it is to lose one's head in the big city, particularly for those already lost.

"Soft in the Head'' is drab, ramshackle stuff - up in everyone's face, and finding very little there.

Top Critic

Surprising, challenging, and never less than thrilling.

Village Voice
Top Critic

Nathan Silver's raucous, disturbing new film is a shrewdly conceived yet emotionally unhinged blend of uproarious situations and devastating outcomes.

New Yorker
Top Critic

Nathan Silver captures the young-adult experience, particularly the agony of first sexual pangs, in films that deftly mix beguilement and repulsion.

Slant Magazine

A concise and blistering indie that captures a sense of volatile madness via sharp handheld aesthetics and a commanding lead performance from Sheila Etxeberria.
