[An] elegant and supremely expressive gem of a film
—The Hollywood Reporter on Golden Exits

Nick has settled into a safe existence in a small pocket of Brooklyn, where he currently toils on an archival project for his father-in-law. Soon, 20-something Naomi arrives from Australia to assist Nick for the semester. She has no acquaintances in the city beyond a loose family connection to Buddy, a music producer who lives in the same neighborhood. For the few months she spends around Nick, Buddy, and their families, Naomi's presence upsets the unpleasant balance holding these two households together.
Writer/director Alex Ross Perry (2014’s Listen Up Philip) returned to the Sundance Film Festival in 2017 with another acerbic ensemble, this time exploring the personal torment belying domesticated oblivion. His impressive cast embraces both the dramatic and darkly comedic faces of despair intertwining throughout the incisive script. As with his previous works, Golden Exits is impeccably designed by Perry's regular collaborators: cinematographer Sean Price Williams, editor Robert Greene, and composer Keegan DeWitt.
