Movie Info

A kaleidoscopic film portrait of Shelly Brown, a twenty-three-year-old alienated urban misfit going through a hard time. Starring Stella Schnabel, featuring Rene Ricard and introducing other notable New York personalities, the film gives pathos to the frenzy of the youthful desire for acceptance.

Shot in a variety of styles and formats, YOU WON'T MISS ME mixes non-actors with professionals, verité with staging, order with abstraction, to paint an evocative picture of a contemporary rebel. -- (C) Official Site

Audience Reviews for You Won't Miss Me

  • May 06, 2012
    "You Won't Miss Me" starts with Shelly(Stella Schnabel, who also co-wrote) being told by her therapist that she is not mentally ill enough to stay at the hospital anymore. On the other hand, there is the issue of drugs which she consumes with friends before hooking up with one for the night. Otherwise, she goes out for acting auditions while making a film with another friend. Without much of a story to speak of, "You Won't Miss Me" still manages to stand on its own as a character study of somebody who is not impossible, just difficult. In fact, the only scene I had trouble watching was Shelly smoking in the hotel lobby probably because it was so unnecessary a confrontation it had to be a performance. Admittedly, Shelly finds drugs as a temporary escape from her life, of which the same thing could be said of her acting where she tries on different personas like clothes. In the process, she is exposed to new ideas and people while not being fond of the professional side of the acting process.
