Open Five
EMILY, an articulate, emotionally mature, young NY woman, and her spontaneous friend LIZA, take an ill-fated weekend trip to Memphis, TN. Originally intended as a romantic tryst, the trip turns complicated--the time between buying the plane ticket and the actual trip has seen EMILY become more involved in a relationship in NY. The man in Memphis is JAKE, a NY transplant living as a musician and temporary maid. While EMILY and JAKE work it out, JAKE's friend in Memphis, KENTUCKER, and LIZA hit it off. --© Official Site

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Those familiar with the slapdash cinematography in Joe Swanberg's own movies might be surprised to discover the filmmaker's restrained, occasionally shimmering lenswork in Kentucker Audley's Open Five."
‑ Andrew Schenker, Village Voice
"The dubious comforts of 'coolness' -- the Audley character's emotional flatness, created, like metamorphic rock, by the pressures of self-awareness, self-loathing and self-regard -- may be the movie's true subject."
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"There's a larger issue nagging many of these no-budget films about struggling young adults: They assume that all aspiring, rootless artistes are incapable of even rudimentary thought when the opposite is normally the case."
‑ Chuck Bowen, Slant Magazine
