March 23, 2017 — 30 is the new 20.
French Dirty, despite its name, explores the coming-of-age of a group of 30-year old Los Angeles residents who are just coming to grips with the fact that their youth is ending (films about the end of youth used to focus on significantly younger people).
The past and present seem to intermingle in the mind of one millennial, as he copes with adult emotions — possibly for the first time.
Vincent (Wade Allain-Marcus, who also directed along with his brother Jesse) has just slept with Roma (Melina Lizette), his best friend Steve’s (Arjun Gupta, Nurse Jackie) girlfriend and is processing guilt. He had been attracted to Roma from the start, and may even be in love with her. But he was with someone else when they originally met and he introduced her to Steve.
Now he has to weigh the importance of the two relationships and deal with them in an adult way.
Winner of numerous awards during its festival run, French Dirty is a highly acclaimed, sexy and surprisingly wise comedy/drama with roots in French New Wave cinema.
