Starlit – AO (Fishkill, New York)
Starlit is a romantic road drama with any number of twists. Jessica Alvarez is twenty-four and bored. What she has is an MBA, a safe corporate gig, a bland boyfriend, a steady supply of pills for her ADHD, and a room at home with a suffocating mother. She craves independence and adventure; she needs to feel alive. She wants to assert her rights, but all that remains of her independence is a stargazing hobby and a BMW roadster. Then one summer morning she meets a bad-boy car mechanic who cons her into going on-the-lam with him for a short spell... that becomes a long spell, from the Hudson Valley up to Maine. They hike the Appalachian Trail by day and enjoy the stars at night. But is he too good to be true? 2017; 94 min. With a Q+A session with Director AO, Producer Kerry Borchardt and members of the Cast and Crew!
