Please Be Normal

Filmed in New York City and Connecticut, “Please Be Normal” is a bold and visionary reflection on the universal problem of choosing the direction of our lives. A young, struggling playwright and theater director, Victor, and his girlfriend Mary are expecting their first child. As Mary’s father keeps buying them things they could never afford, Victor’s sense of entrapment grows. His inner struggle to meet their expectations seems to be guiding him towards a way of life he is unwilling to accept. The suffocating reality his life is becoming pushes him towards and escape, but is it for real? Awards:
