"Phyllis and Harold" is an astoundingly frank journey through a disastrous 59-year-old marriage.
Drawing on a lifetime of her family's home movies and interviews made over 12 years, filmmaker Cindy Kleine mixes reportage, cinema verite and animation to uncover family secrets and tell a story that could not be shown publicly as long as her father was alive. "Phyllis and Harold" delves into the mystery of time passing, the nature of living a life, and the challenges of losing those we love.
But it is also a loving, funny expose on the sins of suburbia.
