Two twenty-somethings, unrelated, struggle to maintain their personal relationships going about their day-to-day life in Vancouver. Brian Daniel Johnson directs “Side Walks,” a simple, yet cinematic, look at the lives of two young adults mainly told through their phone calls. Simon lives with his mom and her boyfriend and has recently been iced out by someone he considers a close friend. Next we meet Emma. The young woman, after getting into an altercation at a party, has a breakdown the next day while leaving a voicemail for her friend. Johnson’s film, with its non-traditional structure, distinct visual style, and delicate electronic score, is a refreshing look at the social isolation and confusion of young adulthood. -Jinho Myung.
