BolderLife Festival: Lonely Boy
2013, 124 Minute Running Time
The romantic misadventures of a schizophrenic bachelor. Franky is stuck in a directionless rut of cold isolation. He lives in a hauntingly bare apartment and works a dead-end job. As a uniquely spirited young man in constant pursuit of romance, Franky attempts to navigate the mercilessly harsh world of dating. There’s just one caveat: he suffers from schizophrenia and recently decided to liberate himself from his medication. After losing his job because of his illness, things take a tragically funny turn for the not-so-good. When he finds a genuine connection with Alex, he inadvertently sets on a path towards self-actualization. Franky searches to uncover the truths about his family's past in hopes to bring him peace and clarity. However, what he finds may in fact cloud his reality further.
