June 3-9: Some Days Are Better Than Others At NYC Cinema Village

Carrie Brownstein talks directly to a video camera

Matt McCormick‘s debut feature film Some Days Are Better Than Others is screening for one week, from June 3 to 9, at Cinema Village in NYC. You can look up specific showtimes and buy tickets in advance online at the theater’s website.

The film is a fictional narrative about the lives of several people living on the fringes of society, including an animal shelter worker who is obsessed with reality TV, a slacker who holds off finding employment, a thrift store worker and an elderly filmmaker.

Starring in the film are: Carrie Brownstein (of Sleater-Kinney), James Mercer, David Wodehouse, Renee Roman Nose and Erin McGarry.

The official synopsis reads:

Some Days are Better Than Others is a poetic, character-driven film that asks why the good times slip by so fast while the difficult times seem so sticky. The film explores ideas of abundance, emptiness, human connection and abandonment while observing an interweaving web of awkward characters who maintain hope by inventing their own forms of communication and self-fulfillment. Some Days are Better Than Others is a sad valentine to the forgotten discards of a throwaway society, and is a story about knowing when to hold on, and when to let go.
