The Boy Downstairs

The Boy Downstairs

From first-time writer-director Sophie Brooks, this original romantic comedy is the coming-of-age tale of a young writer looking to find her way back in New York City after a two-year stint in London. Zosia Mamet (Girls) exhibits winsome charm as Diana, navigating the rite of passage of every single New Yorker: the search for the perfect apartment. She seemingly finds such a jewel of a home, until realising her downstairs neighbour is actually an ex whose heart she broke when she left town.

Making the girl-meets-boy story new again, The Boy Downstairs asks real questions about love, chemistry and growing up.

Premiered at the 2017 Tribeca Film Festival.
