Movie Info

Artist/filmmaker Laurel Nakadate takes the helm for her first feature film, an audacious, non-linear drama revolving around the solitary lives of a tenuously connected group of young women from the American heartland. Shot in Kansas City and set in the actual homes of the amateur cast-members, Stay the Same Never Change tells the story of regular people seeking something more out of life. Their lives bursting at the seems with quiet desire, the young women each aspire to create new lives for themselves, or simply stretch out to grab opportunities that are perpetually just out of reach.

The provocative pic, often disturbingly absorbing from moment to moment, registers as considerably less than the sum of its parts.

Top Critic

An alluring and exotic look at the desires of lonely and bored teenage girls caught and carried away by their powerful desires for love and human connection.

Spirituality and Practice

Shines a light on an artist's prurient, shamelessly exploitative, and attention-grabbing instincts.

Audience Reviews for Stay the Same Never Change that review is spot on. but it's actually worse than it sounds. it's never even close to being a beautiful as it is in still photos. it's so horribly bad. not even casiotone for the painfully alone saves it.
