MY WAY – a kick ass girl movie
A Selection of 2014 Lincoln Center Sound + Vision Series
Feb. 20-26 at Arena Cinema Hollywood
Feb. 27-Mar.5 at The Quad NYC
My Way begins with the conventional “small-town girl livin’ in a lonely (corporate) world.” Yet instead of taking the midnight train, Rebekah Starr trades her briefcase for a Les Paul, grabs her sassy Estonian tambourine-banging sidekick Annika and hits the highway—destination: Sunset Strip. When Rebekah’s marriage falls apart in real time, we realize her dream is not a whim. It is a burning passion for music that comes with its share of real world sacrifices. Her contagious optimism acts as the film’s through line, hoping to inspire anyone feeling trapped by their circumstances.
Comments by Co-Directors Vinny Sisson and Dominique Mollee:
My Way is a collection of different mediums and formats, which stitch together a fun, energetic narrative about two women taking on the world. We saw the potential in the human story. After taking the footage that Rebekah had amassed, which was captured basically at a whim and piecing together a story that worked in screenwriting terms, we ended up with a fully fleshed out narrative and likable characters.
