Forest For the Trees (2005): A first-year teacher moves to the big city and tries to make a friend. For anyone who’s ever lived the brutal combination of social weirdness and self awareness.

(currently available for free for Amazon Prime members!)


Everyone Else (2009): Have you ever been in a relationship that had already expired and then you go on vacation and get lost? What about one where the day-to-day of the relationship depended on your partner’s confidence level at any given moment? Have you ever had dinner guests who stayed too long and you wanted to stick a knife in their face and tell them to GTFO? This is all of the above.



Toni Erdmann (2016): A businesswoman’s hippie prankster father shows up and won’t leave her alone. It’s about parents wanting their adult children to be happy and adult children not knowing how to connect and look, just call your parents okay? They love you and want to know more about your life. Watch this before the American remake just in case it’s a bummer.
