Directed by Dicky Dahl

Portland 2014 87 mins. In English

Based on his short film of the same name, Dahl’s first feature weaves documentary and narrative elements into a poignant and funny memoir about the collapse of his marriage and subsequent struggles to find his footing in the bohemian paradise that is Portland, Oregon. His ex-wife, parents, and brothers appear as themselves in the film and scripted material, footage from the director’s married life, and interviews with family and friends paint the picture of a somewhat misguided late-bloomer experiencing all the freedom, loneliness and humiliation that come with having to start over when the bloom is off the rose.
