Mel (Rebecca Kohler) is frustrated with her life, her love and her career. But breaking up with her long-distance boyfriend (Jonathan Goldstein) sets her on course for an unexpected summer romance. Her roommate Chris (Steve Murray) is grappling with work and love, too. And the rest of her friends are anxious about their own jobs, futures and haircuts. No Heart Feelings is the funny tale of a group of friends navigating their way through life in the city. Set in a vibrant Toronto over the course of a lazy, sun-dappled summer, No Heart Feelings is a post-post coming of age story, a laugh-out-loud meditation on what it’s like to be nearing the end of your twenties without kids, mortgage or direction in life.
“A quiet triumph… Working with a Lilliputian budget and a non-professional cast, the trio of directors has managed to do in Toronto what Whit Stillman did in New York with Metropolitan – precisely capture particular mannerisms, turns of phrase, modes of dress, then allow all that specificity to resonate.” 3/4 stars – Rick Groen, The Globe and Mail
3/4 stars – Chris Knight, The National Post
“A rom-com for the Facebook age.” 3/4 stars – Jason Anderson, The Toronto Star
“The acting is wonderfully naturalistic, the writing is sweet.”
- Morley Walker, Winnipeg Free Press
“This is summer in the city, as crappy and majestic as you remember it.”
- Chandler Levack, The Grid
