After You Left
After You Left is a strange concoction, equal parts bleak comedy and potent drama, but the story isn’t a shocker. It’s about love lost. Mat and Sara (Tisdale and Tucker, respectively) have broken up, and Mat hasn’t moved on. You’ve seen it a thousand times before. And that’s precisely the reason After You Left works. It feels so natural, so close to home; like watching two real people try to figure out what to do with each other. Although clearly inspired by films like Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Taylor’s film is unique: his camera is impeccable, the script jumps from heart-wrenching to hilarious without hesitation and, most importantly, it’s born of something immediate and personal. Tisdale, in particular, is fantastic: his performance is never overwrought and always believable, always recognizable. After You Left is the kind of passionate, intimate filmmaking that doesn’t come around often. Make sure to check it out.
