Living out Loud


1h 33m 1998

Brief Synopsis

A film about New York state of mind which chronicles the life of Judith Nelson, a woman who has lived the life of a wealthy, Fifth Avenue doctor's wife. But after her husband abandons her for a younger woman, Judith is left to reconcile the silence of her plush Co-op--a silence filled with memories and frustrations. When her isolation is interrupted by a chance, fleeting romantic encounter, Judith sees the world through new eyes. Refreshed with the possibilities of a new life, she befriends her building elevator operator, Pat--a familiar yet nameless face--and she discovers he, too, has a life filled with loss and dreams beyond this invisible daily job. Together, they confide in and console each other.
