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

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

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.
