Exit Elena (Nathan Silver, 2012) 3.5/5
First off, I just wanna say that I did like this film. I think it’s a good film, no question about it. But, the thing that bothers me about it is that I can’t seem to completely buy or understand who this Elena character is supposed to be. Like, to me, she seems like a cool person. She has like hipster vibes. So, I don’t understand how is it that she doesn’t seem to have family or friends or even a boyfriend and would choose to work as a live-in aide so she’d have somewhere to live??? I mean that just really confused me. Maybe I missed something? Idk. Of course the film barely offers any help by way of information which I respect, of course, but there’s just a disconnect there for me so if someone could enlighten me about this, I’d appreciate it.
