In Dreams of a Life, writer/director Carol Morley investigates the impossible happening in our interconnected world: in 2003, a young woman died in her apartment, and her body wasn’t found until 3 years later. Was she a shut-in? Some crazy cat lady who kept to herself naturally? Shockingly, no. Joyce Vincent had a healthy social life with friends and admirers. So why was she found with unopened Christmas presents, a television that had been stuck on the same channel and a window that hadn’t been shut in 3 years?
That’s the mystery that the trailer promises to solve. With dramatic reconstructions and interviews with those that knew her, Morley sets out to discover how something like this could possibly happen and to learn who Vincent really was.
Hopefully she asks everyone why they didn’t notice she was missing:
It doesn’t get much better than that for compelling subject matter.
Dreams of a Life is available on DVD and through iTunes.
