How To Be

This movie might jive with the new flock of 20-somethings that find themselves in a state of 1/4 life crisis. A fairly recent phenomenon seen in a time when choices and possibilities can become overwhelming. This movie explores themes of dysfunction and growing up. Set in London, the movie features Twilight star Robert Pattinson.

This phenomenon, known as the “Quarterlife Crisis,” is as ubiquitous as it is intangible. Unrelenting indecision, isolation, confusion and anxiety about working, relationships and direction is reported by people in their mid-twenties to early thirties who are usually urban, middle class and well-educated; those who should be able to capitalize on their youth, unparalleled freedom and free-for-all individuation. They can’t make any decisions, because they don’t know what they want, and they don’t know what they want because they don’t know who they are, and they don’t know who they are because they’re allowed to be anyone they want.
