Not Waving But Drowning Movie

After some strongly positive audience reactions from a handful of festivals, the team behind Not Waving But Drowning has chosen to make the film available online for free starting at the end of August. Written and directed by Devyn Waitt, it opens with a brief prologue focusing on a pair’s relationship after one of their mothers commits suicide, but the bulk of the story revolves around two best friends who head in two different directions. Adele sprints from a small town in Florida to experience New York City while Sara stays put, dealing with a depressive father and obtaining a new view of the tiny town that diminishes the urge to follow in her friend’s bit city-seeking footsteps.

Starring Vanessa Ray and Megan Guinan, it also features performances from Girls‘ Adam Driver and veteran actress Lynn Cohen (The Station AgentMunich).

The trailer feels indie to the core, and the trail of praise (not to mention the price tag) definitely make this one to watch.

Keep an eye out. Not Waving But Drowning hits YouTube for free at the end of the month.
