Kate Can't Swim
United States, 2017, 90 min.
Includes nudity, sexual content and adult language.
Kate (Celeste Arias) is almost thirty, almost engaged, almost settled in her career as a writer - but is deeply dissatisfied. When Kate's best friend Em (Jennifer Allcott) returns from Paris with a surprising new lover in tow (Josh Helman), Kate and her boyfriend Pete (Grayson DeJesus) spend a weekend in upstate New York with the new couple. As Kate struggles with her suspicions about Em's new lover, dormant feelings about her own life arise, forcing her to decide whether to stay on her current life path or to burn it down and forge a new one.
Most of us have had the realization that our lives are not exactly what we thought they'd be. It was going through this period ourselves that made us want to make a film like Kate Can't Swim. We wanted to create something that gradually got under your skin. We wanted our characters to be people you recognize and want to laugh with and be around. Because at the end of the day, everyone's struggling to connect with something or someone. Everyone's trying to find their true selves. Everyone's dealing with the inevitable nature of change. But most of us just want to keep our heads above water.
