“We’re all adults now and we’re all going to die soon.”
–From Loveless, 2011
Last night, was the world premiere of Loveless, an independent film by Ramin Serry about Generation X in midlife crisis. This has become a popular theme in movies over the last couple of years from the Grown Ups to Greenberg to Eat, Pray, Love.
Mark Asch with L Magazine has published an interview with Serry. Here is an excerpt:
“I’m not sure, but A.O. Scott wrote an article identifying a new mini-phenomenon of films and books dealing with Gen X facing midlife crisis. This seems like a natural development and I’m glad to be a part of it. The Baby Boomer narrative has been so heavily covered over the past few decades that it feels good to be able to represent my own generation.”
