Need Something To Do Monday?

We're not sure why, but it seems like feeling lost in your 20s is kinda common. Common enough for filmmaker Kenny Riches to make a film about it, at least.

The 31-year-old's first feature-length film, Must Come Down, will be screened tonight at Boise Contemporary Theater. It has been shown at Cinequest San Jose Film Festival, the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival, the Newport Beach Film Festival and Phoenix Film Festival.

The film follows 20-something lost indie souls, Ashley and Holly. Ashley is on a nostalgia-fueled direction-searching adventure after leaving his job. Holly has just had her heart broken, and lost her job. The two (kind of adorably) meet at a bus stop and the trailer shows them tearing up photos of last loves, pretending to be tight-rope walkers atop a bus stop bench and wearing plastic horse heads for no apparent reason.

While this quirky film may be a first for Riches, it isn't his inaugural venture into exploring youth. He displayed a collection of artwork entitled The Trouble With Being Young at Kayo Gallery in Salt Lake City in 2011. Check it out on his website.

Tonight's screening will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Riches and the film's cast members. Tickets are $10 and available in advance at BCT's website.
