Set in the 1970s, this film follows Scott (Rory Culkin) as he falls in love for the first time and watches his parents? marriage fall apart. LYMELIFE also stars Emma Roberts, Alex Baldwin, and Cynthia Nixon.
Rory Culkin (MEAN CREEK) stars in the coming-of-age drama LYMELIFE. Set in 1970s Long Island, the film has a WONDER YEARS feel with its friendly spats between brothers and a major crush on the all-American girl next door. As 15-year-old Scott, Culkin shares the screen with real-life brother Kieran Culkin, whose character, Jimmy, is just returning home on a break from the army. While Scott pines for his best friend, Adrianna (Emma Roberts), his family slowly unravels all around him. Alec Baldwin delivers a predictably solid performance as Scott?s meandering, sometimes heartless dad, but this role feels quite similar to ones we?ve seen him play in the past. Jill Hennessy is well-cast as Scott?s weary mother, as are Cynthia Nixon playing against type as a ditzy housewife, and Timothy Hutton as her Lyme-diseased husband. While their parents sloppily mess their way through the world of marriage and affairs, Scott and Adrianna explore a more genuine kind of romance. It is the young cast members who really shine, with Rory Culkin driving the film's emotional core. More than five years since starring in IGBY GOES DOWN, Kieran Culkin shows a new maturity here. The real-life brothers display true chemistry (thanks in part to on-screen improvisation), and Roberts is charming as Adrianna. The joint effort of brothers Derick and Steven Martini, LYMELIFE was penned, directed, and produced by the brother pair, who wrote the script about their own teen years. Artful cinematography and a classic soundtrack come together in capturing the easily lost wonder of youth.
?Sometime late in LYMELIFE the director Derick Martini cuts to a close-up of a weeping teenager....It?s an unexpectedly moving image, a reminder that the close-up, in its ability to bring us near to the poetry of the human face, remains one of cinema?s most potent if often squandered techniques.?-- Manohla Dargis, New York Times
?[A] fine chronicle of disaffection, dissolution and lust on Long Island in the 1970s...?-- Zinat S., Movieline
"[T]his keenly observed film wrenches gallows humor out of a crumbling family....It's a movie that gets under the skin."-- Michael Ordona, Los Angeles Times
3 stars out of 4 -- "[An] absorbing and well-acted tale of two unhappy families in 1979 suburbia....The writing -- by director Derick Martini and his brother Steven -- is sharp, funny and sometimes emotionally raw."-- Claudia Puig, USA Today
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "The film is about the distance between the ideal and the real....A tender, sometimes painful, sometimes blackly comic, story. The film's characters are not types but particular people..."-- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
