Very brief thoughts on DON'T YOU LET ME GO (2024) Tribeca 2024

While attending the funeral of her friend, Elena, Ardela finds herself unrooted and traveling back ten years to a beach house.

Magical realism is in full force here in the story of the ones we love and what we are left with when they pass on.  It's a film about finding the people we love and not letting them go.

This is a well done little film that didn't really connect to with me. It's not that the film is primarily focused on women and their friendship, more that the film is a bit too low key for my tastes.  The film didn't seem to peak and valley with emotion it sort of moved up to a certain level  and then stayed there. Yes the story engaged me but it never played  my heart.

I suspect it's just I am the wrong audience for the film. It happens, not every film works for everyone.

If you think this film will work for you, please try it.
