Synopsis by Mark Deming
A few dozen would-be artists, writers, and filmmakers spend an evening exchanging ideas (and sometimes phone numbers) at a party in this independent comedy drama. It's Saturday night, and Bobby (E. Jason Liebrecht), an aspiring playwright, arrives at a brownstone in Brooklyn where a party is being thrown. Bobby doesn't really know anyone at the gathering besides Harper (Minerva Scelza), his former girlfriend who would prefer not to see him, but he has his eye on Susan (Nicol Zanzarella), a film editor who is hosting the bash with her roommate, Rose (Erin S. Visslailli). Harper has her eye on Tommy (Stephen T. Neave), a handsome but obnoxious salesman whose desire to talk is in inverse proportion to his ability to say anything interesting. Meanwhile, Bobby's efforts to impress Susan hit a snag with the arrival of Tomasz (Pavel Liska), her intellectual former flame. And as various singles attempt to become couples, one couple -- Josh and Annie (Bradley Spinelli and Jennifer Larkin) -- threatens to self-destruct as an argument from earlier in the evening begins to reignite. Home was the first feature film from writer and director Matt Zoller Seitz, best known as a film critic for the New York Press.
