L FOR LEISURE
A Film by Lev Kalman & Whitney Horn

L FOR LEISURE is an impressionistic, episodic comedy about laziness, wandering and wasting time. Hanging out with teenagers when you're thirty, smoking nutmeg to get high and eating pie until you fall asleep. Teaching a dog to boogie board. Set to the rhythm of the school-year calendar, L FOR LEISURE tracks the changes to the collected spirit of a group of graduate students through 1992-93 as they go on various vacations. Sprinkled among activities like coed wrestling, macking on teenagers, and naps, are soliloquies on the heavy and heady topics of the day.

In its focus on highly thoughtful but somehow clueless characters, L FOR LEISURE is an homage to the 90s films of directors like Hal Hartley, Whit Stillman and Eric Rohmer, treating its characters and scenarios as deeply contextualized moving parts and using them to explore ideas about adulthood, lifestyle, alternate universes and sport. The original soundtrack washes between luxurious dance and echoey ambience, sometimes operating in the background and then taking the whole movie along into extended reveries. Similarly, while each character is individuated, they also reflect, repeat and meld into each other, like they are all aspects of one spirit which L FOR LEISURE is a portrait of.
