Synopsis by Mark Deming
Two lonely adults in New York City engage in an unusual mating dance in the atmospheric comedy/drama Sometime In August. Marcia (Sylva Kelegian) has often been disappointed in love and has just gone through yet another painful breakup, while a ghost of her older self (Terry Keane) often visits to remind her of her failings. In hopes of making her life more interesting, she hires a man named Igor (Michael Medeiros) who poses as a private investigator. Marcia assumes another personality, which she wants Igor to follow. Soon Igor, pretending to be a detective, is trailing Marcia, who is pretending to be another woman. An attraction develops between the two, but will they ever be able to share their real selves with each other? Sometime In August had its premier at the 1999 Los Angeles Independent Film Festival.
