With its stop-and-start production taking more than a decade, the very existence of Saving Sally is a miraculous fairy tale of its own. This wildly creative mix of live action and animation centers on geeky wannabe comic book artist Marty and his hopeless crush on beautiful and spunky inventor Sally. They first meet in high school when Sally uses her quirky gadgets to rescue Marty from bullies. But they never become more than best friends, and his romantic fantasies are crushed when he becomes the enabler of her douchebag boyfriend. Meanwhile, she hides bruises that hint at domestic abuse at the hands of her monstrous parents. Years later, they reconnect after Marty successfully pitches a comic to a publisher about an astronomer dedicated to saving a girl imprisoned by aliens, an artistic manifestation of his complicated relationship with Sally. New York Premiere.
