You Hurt My Feelings
Brooklyn, United States
NYC Theatrical Premiere, One Week Only!
*** Writer-Director STEVE COLLINS + Stars JOHN MERRIMAN and COURTNEY DAVIS in person Fri. 5/4 ***
"[CRITICS' PICK!] Like something that David Gordon Green might have made before being seduced by more generously financed projects, this fragile sophomore feature, written and directed by Steve Collins, reminds us that watching movies matters much more than listening to them."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES (read the review)
"[EDITORS' PICK!] Well-observed, unassumingly quiet... terrific performances!"
- Bilge Ebiri, NEW YORK MAGAZINE
"YOU HURT MY FEELINGS is like a Buster Keaton comedy of pain slowed all the way down to the depressive pace of jobless-recovery culture. It rarely raises its voice, but look inside and you'll find a funny and heartfelt microcosm of the malaise (and moments of joy) of American life in the here and now."
- Paul Sbrizzi, HAMMER TO NAIL
"The charms of YOU HURT MY FEELINGS lie not in what occurs, but in how it moves seamlessly from one chapter to another, balancing the incipient irony with moments of naked emotion that arrive like brief, furious thunderstorms."
- John Anderson, VARIETY
"A fluid and ultimately beguiling indie character study brimming with revelatory moments... The final shot-reverse-shot between John and Courtney, confronting each other yet again after a traumatic shift in their respective lives, is a perfect example of the film's deceptive tenderness. Here, the pain of the past and hope for the future rest side by side, and like many of the best moments in YOU HURT MY FEELINGS, the characters' subtly expressive faces do all the talking."
- Glenn Heath Jr., SLANT MAGAZINE
WATCH THE TRAILER:
Presented by Oscilloscope Labs, YOU HURT MY FEELINGS is the L.A. Film Festival hit dramedy with the humor of spring and the sorrow of winter. Produced by Spirit Award winner Anish Savjani (MEEK'S CUTOFF), filmmaker Steve Collins' follow-up to his award-winning GRETCHEN makes its NYC theatrical premiere with a week-long run, May 4 - 10.
Children and nature shine in this melancholy love story about Johnny (John Merriman), a male nanny who tries to win back his girlfriend (Courtney Davis) after she takes up with a man who looks just like him (Macon Blair). The film tracks the growth of the relationship over four seasons in New England, as Johnny's emotional problems sabotage his attempts to put a family together like the one he takes care of. Impressionistically photographed by Jeremy Saulnier (PUTTY HILL), YOU HURT MY FEELINGS speaks with the honesty of a child about people struggling to let go of darkness and find love.
