A TOUCHING ROMANTIC COMEDY

FOR THE SOCIALLY NETWORKED

Think Chocolat meets Lars and the Real Girl.

 

Relationship Status makes us laugh while exploring the struggles to banish loneliness through online social networks and the re-discovery of the power of *IRL connection. (*In Real Life)

 

Charlie and Penny couldn’t be more opposed in their efforts, but the two find themselves oddly united to defend free speech when a group of radicals try to have their way. Romance ensues.

Charlie struggles with his own relationship with his Blackberry-addicted father. He fears social networks only turn everyone into self-absorbed zombies – and he fears for his father’s newspaper’s survival if the Internet comes to his small Minnesota town. But “technology activist” Penny sees it as her duty to connect the town to the outside world, hiding her own lonely search for love online. She’s gone so far as to start mapping the town for Google Street View with a camera set-up jerry-rigged to the top of her beat-up minivan!

Check out Director, Peter Bean's short film ReCalculating for a look at this award-winning exploration of the intersection of our love for our smart phones and romance IRL*.
