Flick Pick: There Is a New World Somewhere

When I was in upstate New York last month, I went to a small theater to see a JFK Jr. documentary (loved him). During the previews, there was the trailer for this film. I immediately sent myself a text so I wouldn't forget the title. It's a good thing that I did because it might have been impossible to come across this film again. And nothing drives me crazier than not being able to source a song or movie that is escaping my memory.

I haven't seen it just yet but the script and cinematography does look promising. I enjoy deeper movies that are centered around travel & romance so I have a feeling I might like this one.

UPDATE: I'd rate this movie a 7/10. Kept my interest. I watched on Amazon Video since my iTunes rental didn't play.

SEMI-SPOILER: As a hopeless romantic, I hope the director, Li Lu, pulls a Linklater and films a sequel to this with the same characters 9-10 years from now. There Is a New World Somewhere shared similar elements with Before Sunrise. And any movie that can even closely be compared to my favorite of all time is worthy of a recommendation.
