After breaking up ...

 with her boyfriend, Lilian (Grace Van Patten) moves in with married couple Julia (Emily Mortimer) and Don (Ebon Moss-Bachrach) only to overhear them arguing in the night. The front door slams as Don moves out, and the following days sees Lilian, selfish and irresponsible, having to earn her keep by cooking for Julia, a reclusive, distrustful writer who rarely emerges from her room. Though communicating largely through notes, the odd couple gradually forge a bond and help one another to negotiate the foibles, phobias and obstacles that have long hindered their happiness…

"Good Posture was ...

… shot entirely in Bedsty Brooklyn, within walking distance of my house. With friends and family. In a whirlwind. I couldn’t have loved the experience more. Having acted for 22 years I have never had such respect for actors as I did my first time directing. And for my talented and tireless crew. Good Posture is a love letter to New York. A thank you letter to my new life, my new home, my new friends. And to pain and loss. I wanted to show that while it might appear that Emily’s character is in some way guiding Grace’s really they are both lost. It doesn’t get any easier. And maybe we don’t want it to. We want to keep questioning and learning.”

"A love letter to New York and a spry salute to sisterhood"

Neil Smith

"A forgiving, gently funny look at post-college cluelessness"

John DeFore
