Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench

2009 NR

Black-and-white verité meets the charm of the classic Hollywood musical in writer-director Damien Chazelle's romantic drama about a jazz trumpeter named Guy (Jason Palmer) who's perennially falling in and out of love. After connecting with the shy Madeline (Desiree Garcia), Guy embarks on a quest for a more gregarious paramour, but through a series of twists and turns punctuated by an original score, the two lovers seem destined to be together.
