Chris invites an online date to his Brooklyn apartment where it gets off to a rocky start and ends suddenly (kind of). “Lucy in the Morning,” directed by Isaac Cole, is both an admission of the awkwardness and unromantic standards of modern “dating,” and an increasingly tender portrait of two strangers getting to know one another. Both Chris and Lucy lean into some form of irony or detachment as a personality rule, and thus we’re never quite sure what game is being played on which end. After a few objectionable attempts at jokes from Chris, the pair settles in with some Prosecco and chit-chat about jobs. But as the title suggests, what we’re really watching for is the morning after, and that’s when everything shifts. It’s a short that sneaks up on you gradually, accumulating depth with two wonderfully nuanced performances from Raye Levine and Chris Haag, and a lovely, almost mournful ukulele tune bookending the film. -KA. Written and directed by Isaac Cole. Starring Raye Levine and Chris Haag. Cinematography by Marc Katz. Music by Sam Johnson.
