Today’s Tribeca Fest Picks: Exploding Girl, Guy and Madeline

Screening tonight: a bittersweet Brooklyn love story and a modern take on the musical

Tribeca Film Festival

Zoe Kazan (Revolutionary Road) is the quiet, throbbing heart of The Exploding Girl, Bradley Rust Gray's meditation on the slipperiness of relationships. Kazan is Ivy, a girl whose summer back from college is spent at home in Brooklyn, trying to keep a long-distance romance alive and redefining friendship with a guy friend she thought she knew. 7:45PM, AMC Village VII. More info and tickets here.

If swirling, twirling musicals from the 1940s make your heart beat a little faster, Guy and Madeline on a Park Bench may be the best movie ticket you buy all year. Set in Boston, it's the story of Jason Palmer and Desiree Garcia in the title roles: They're in love, they're torn apart, they play trumpets and tap dance and wait for fate to lend a hand. If that's not delightful enough, Damien Chazelle's movie is shot in black and white (!) and on 16mm (!!?). 7:15PM, AMC Village VII. More info and tickets here.
