Escaping the city for upstate New York to refresh her mind and look after her reclusive Great Aunt, Dora discovers her hidden romantic past and revelations that will pull both of them both from their spirals of depression.
Unfortunately I Dream Too Much fails to grow from its indie aspirations into a fully fledged feature. There are lots of strange moments and irregularities that make the film feel unfortunately amateurish. Characters go from being in a big fight to best friends in the space of a cut, and a famous musician suddenly agrees to play as the backing band for a local amateur singer at a poetry reading.
I Dream Too Much means well but it can’t move beyond its televisual a esthetic and a bland plot that doesn’t really go anywhere. You can sense what writer/director Katie Cokinos was going for, but I Dream Too Much really misses the mark.
