About The Film:
The captivating Zosia Mamet (Girls) stars as a conflicted millennial who revisits a failed romance when she unknowingly moves into her ex-boyfriend’s Brooklyn brownstone, in THE BOY DOWNSTAIRS.

Returning to New York after an extended stint in London, artistically unfulfilled writer Diana (Mamet) moves into the perfect apartment while earning her keep by working at a bridal shop. Advising her are her free-spirited widowed landlady Amy, and kooky best friend Gabby. Diana thinks she has made a new start, until realizing her downstairs neighbor is her teddy bear-like old flame, the vulnerable and aggrieved Ben (Matthew Shear), whose heart she broke. Like a true New Yorker, she keeps the apartment, despite the awkward arrangement. As the estranged couple attempts to navigate cordial not-so-cohabitation and their knotty feelings, first-time writer-director Sophie Brooks flashes back to the early bloom of their courtship, the question of what went wrong hanging over every scene. This quirky and easygoing millennial love story features a stellar cast, led by Mamet and Shear, and supported by indie stalwart Deirdre O’Connell, as well as newcomers Sarah Ramos and Diana Irvine.

A fresh take on an oft-told girl-meets-boy story, THE BOY DOWNSTAIRS offers a touching and lightly comic contemplation of modern relationships, life choices and the price of independence and freedom
