With arresting insight, vulnerability, and a delightful sense of humor, director Terence Nance documents the relationship between himself and a young woman as it teeters on the divide between platonic and romantic. Utilizing a tapestry of cinematic styles, Nance explores the fantasies, emotions, and memories that race through his mind.
Stranger Suggests! "The hypnotic rhythm of the off-camera commentary, the editing, and the photography become more and more musical as the plot progresses deeper into the soul of the main character...Oversimplification may be the first feature film that successfully expresses a cinematic black aesthetic. Watch it and you will see what I mean." - Charles Mudede, The Stranger
NYT Crtics’ Pick! "A dense, organic, dazzling and funny tapestry … Nance turns his thought into a performance of vulnerability that’s all too relatable in its indulgences. It has heart without becoming cloying … A definitive mixtape that memorializes, and not so sneakily celebrates, the sweet angst of a certain kind of romantic limbo." —Nicolas Rapold, The New York Times
