READ MORE: LAFF Review: Nathan Silver’s ‘Uncertain Terms’ Finds a Fresh Spin on Marital Problems
Relationships today are increasingly difficult to define and label, no matter where you are in life, and “Uncertain Terms,” the 2014 film from Nathan Silver (“Exit Elena,” “Soft in the Head”), understands that issue. Rather than seeking to find closure, the film prefers to live in the turmoil, confusion and anxiety that relationship difficulties can cause.
Silver writes and directs the film (it was co-written by Chloe Domont and Cody Stokes), which follows Robbie, a 30-year-old man in a disintegrating marriage who flees the city to spend some time at his aunt’s country house, a safe haven for pregnant teenagers. Robbie’s arrival and burgeoning friendship with the young Nina causes upheaval among the teens. David Dahlbom, India Menuez, Caitlin Mehner, Tallie Medel, Gina Piersanti, Hannah Gross and Cindy Silver star in the film.
“Uncertain Terms” was an official selection at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival, Mill Valley Film Festival, Edinburgh International Film Festival, and Starz Denver Film Festival. The film opens in theaters in New York and Los Angeles on June 5th, and will be released on DVD and VOD in July. Check out the poster below:
