Two Weeks Notice, Directed by Melanie Thompson (California) - A man gives his girlfriend two weeks notice before ending their relationship. Breakups are absurd. They are, typically, both a long time coming and completely out of the blue. They bruise your ego one moment then have you wondering why you put up with that person for so long the next. They don’t put their dirty socks in the hamper! They’re weirdly close with their mom! They crack their knuckles too loudly! And they have the audacity to break up with me?! I love how Two Week’s Notice takes these conflicting feelings to the heightened levels of ridiculousness while also touching on some very real relationship truths. Do we stay because we are comfortable? Is settling inevitable, or should we all be seeking rom-com levels of compatibility? I enjoyed exploring those themes while bringing this delightfully funny script to life. But the best part was getting to collaborate again with my friend Marisa. Her pitch-perfect writing made directing Two Week’s Notice an absolute blast, and I feel the fun the entire cast and crew had on set resonates in the film. Please enjoy!
