Before he broke through with Whiplash, Damien Chazelle kicked things off with this resourceful, low-budget Boston-set musical about a jazz trumpeter with a wandering eye and his introverted, out-of-work girlfriend, who begins putting her life back together when he leaves her for another woman. Shot on black-and-white 16mm, and featuring original songs by Justin Hurwitz, this whimsical creation plays a similarly poignant tune of lost love as Chazelle’s Oscar-winning La La Land, but it’s so much more than a warm-up, capturing waves of feeling with vivid streetwise charm.
