At the brink of giving up on all human connection, a painfully inhibited young woman meets a self-loving stranger at New York's Coney Island, inspiring her to ride a rollercoaster - for real and in her own bedroom...
Perfect Love is a short fiction film following Evelyn, a young New York woman who finds herself frequenting Coney Island. Some would say she's obsessed. She’s both repulsed and drawn to the lurid and colorful skin parade of the boardwalk; her brain a complicated jungle of intrusive thoughts, sex, judgment, and longing. We see the world through Evelyn's eyes and it is overwhelming.
We see Evelyn at home and how she feels stuck, her childhood bedroom still seeping with formative memories and unintentional life-lessons from her mother.
However, with the encouragement of a bikini loving Aquarius and the attraction of a morbid borderline punk-conspiracy-theorist, Evelyn's notions of self-love begin to shift.
The film asks: How does a radical internal change affect our view of the world? And what if the most perfect love is just... self-love?
