Blue Jay (2016)?

bluejayposter

Title: Blue Jay
Rating: NR
Directed by: Alexandre Lehmann
Written by: Mark Duplass
Starring: Mark Duplass, Sarah Paulson and Clu Gulager
Release Date: 10/11/2016
Running Time: 80 minutes

IMDb

Former high-school sweethearts Jim (Mark Duplass) and Amanda (Sarah Paulson) have been out of touch for more than 20 years — but by sheer coincidence, they run into each other at a grocery store back in their alpine hometown of Crestline, California. Jim’s mother has died and he’s here to put her house on the market. Amanda is visiting her pregnant sister. They get to talking, first over coffee, then over beer and jellybeans. Before they know it they’re at Jim’s mother’s house, where everything sends them spiralling back into the past. Jim and Amanda’s lives have taken different directions, yet here they are, reconnecting like nothing has changed.

Alex Lehmann’s feature debut is a tender, wise chamber drama about finding yourself adrift in mid-life, longing for something essential that you fear has been lost. The tension in this film, a stateside cousin to Before Sunset, is generated through the uncertainty surrounding the renewed chemistry between Jim and Amanda. It’s hard to know whether what they’re feeling is pertinent to their present lives or a matter of pure nostalgia.
