Woodstock Vermont Film Series: Dina, 3:00 & 5:30 PM
Dina, an outspoken and eccentric 49-year-old in suburban Philadelphia, invites her fiancé, Scott, a Walmart door greeter, to move in with her. Having grown up neurologically diverse in a world blind to the value of their experience, the two are head-over-heels for one another, but moving in together poses new challenges.
Filmmakers Dan Sickles and Antonio Santini construct seamless vérité documentary scenes that lovingly frame Dina and Scott’s vulnerable, yet matter-of-fact romance. Whether at the local nail salon, the warm beaches of Ocean City, NJ, Dina’s racy bachelorette party, or on honeymoon in the Poconos, Dina captures the cadences and candid conversations of a relationship that reexamines the notion of love on-screen.
“A daring affecting film. It’s impossible not to care deeply. A resilient expression of love.” – Tim Grierson, Screen Daily
“Its lead gives the best performance of the year in the story of her life” – Eric Kohn, Indiewire
