Tony Torn, Angelica Torn, New York, NY, Narrative Feature, 103 minutes

Co-directors and siblings Tony Torn and Angelica Torn’s feature debut is the story of Virginia (Angelica Torn) and her quest for freedom during the last summer of Coney Island’s historic amusement park. Duty-bound Virginia's quiet despair is so familiar that she hardly notices it until a chance encounter with a childhood sweetheart stimulates her to discover hidden truths about her boyfriend and her neighborhood that she had previously chosen to ignore. Angelica Torn’s luminescent performance beautifully carries the film, which casts a beguiling spell in the manner of director Alan Rudolph’s early work. Also starring Frederico Castelluccio, Luke Zarzecki, Will Patton, Anne Jackson, Tina Benko, Marilyn Sokol, Gary Wolf and Rip Torn.
