THE WORST YEAR OF MY LIFE
Raw and relatable, "The Worst Year of My Life" is a comedic drama about Kyle, a down-on-his-luck romantic, who, one week before proposing to his girlfriend Amber, discovers that she's been sleeping with another man. Unemployed, saddled with debt, and depressed, Kyle embarks on a funny yet affecting journey to recovery that involves living in his car, bottom-of-the-barrel jobs, therapy, online dating, and Kyle's own wild, fantastical, and snarky imagination.
The second feature film from writer/director Jonathan Smith, “The Worst Year of My Life” deploys any and every narratively adventurous technique imaginable as it anatomizes a three-year relationship from its euphoric inception to its unfortunate end, ultimately detailing the painful but universally relatable process of letting go.
An official selection at the Dances With Films 2014 film festival, Orlando Film Festival 2014, and NewFilmmakers New York Fall 2014.
