SOME DAYS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS

DIRECTOR: Matt McCormick - UNITED STATES

“Delicately weaving together the lives of three lonely strangers, the story explores the elusiveness of personal fulfillment as McCormick’s characters bump up against the discarded—from a kind-eyed shelter dog to the ownerless urn of a little girl’s ashes—and are forced to confront their own impermanence and need for human connection. Subtle, convincing performances by musicians James Mercer (The Shins) and Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) and lyrical cinematography reveal McCormick’s finely-tuned directorial eye. As a silent main character, the city of Portland is the common thread—a reminder that, as bleak as things may seem, in small, unexpected moments around unlikely corners, the possibility for hope and beauty remains. With Some Days are Better Than Others, McCormick establishes himself as an insightful storyteller and a bright new talent.”—AFI Film Festival. (93 mins.)
