Zach Weintraub's third feature continues to exemplify his intimate filmmaking style, with a minimalism reminiscent of Ozu, Claire Denis and many other auteurs of world cinema. So Young features striking visual compositions: shot in shallow focus, they create a study of stasis, boredom, time and domestic anxiety by fashioning expectation out of a series of real-time, non-dramatic shots.
Our heroine Justine has uprooted her life to follow her boyfriend Zach as he pursues his own professional opportunities, in a new place. Instead of intimacy and bliss, what follows her decision is a sense of alienation from the very man she sets out to join. As Zach's work pressures mount, their relationship develops rifts, and Justine begins to explore her own creative endeavors.
Structured as much by the information which we are denied access to, as it is by what is easily observable, You Make Me Feel So Young is a quiet contemplation of cracks in intimacy.
