Nobody Walks


Martine (Olivia Thirlby, The Wackness), a 23-year-old artist from New York, arrives in Los Angeles to stay in the pool house of a family living in the hip and hilly community of Silver Lake. Peter (John Krasinski, The Office), the father, has agreed to help Martine complete sound design on her art film as a favor to his wife. Martine innocently enters the seemingly idyllic life of this open-minded family with two kids and a relaxed Southern California vibe. Like a bolt of lightning, her arrival sparks a surge of energy that awakens suppressed impulses in everyone (especially Peter, whose relationship with the young woman begins to stray into unprofessional territory), forcing them to confront their own fears and desires.
Directed by Ry Russo-Young (You Won’t Miss Me) and co-written by Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture), this potent, sexy and often humorous charting of hidden urges and sufferings links a compelling group of characters in an intricate dance of lust, denial, and deception.
