Going Back, 2010  view film
An LA model returns to her small, quiet home town; holed up in a motel room while phoning around for work, she must confront the mundane existence she tried so hard to escape.

"Set in an edge-of-town motel and diner, Adam Keleman's Going Back (2009) documents the remaining few minutes that failed Los Angeles model Lorna (Lauren Glazier) has to herself before returning to her quiet hometown and meeting the people she thought she'd left behind. The film seems improvised, especially in the numerous long takes that dominate it, but Keleman's meticulously composed framings reveal a tight directorial control. The brief snapshots of Lorna's life, Keleman's command of the widescreen frame and the delicate build up of muted desperation at the heart of the story leave the viewer wanting more." -Dylan Cave, Sight & Sound (read full review)
