2014, Cohen Film, 98 min, USA, Dir: Drake Doremus

Living with his wife and high school-aged daughter in upstate New York, Keith Reynolds (Guy Pearce) is a musician who finds his work as a piano teacher stifling - until the arrival of gifted pianist Sophie Williams (Felicity Jones), who is searching for fulfillment herself. That Sophie is also a British exchange student staying at Keith’s home makes their budding attraction even more problematic. Director Drake Doremus (LIKE CRAZY) handles what could be a formulaic situation with unusual sensitivity, aided by a top-flight cast that includes Amy Ryan and Mackenzie Davis.

2011, Paramount Vantage, 90 min, USA, Dir: Drake Doremus

Aspiring furniture designer Jacob (Anton Yelchin) and poetry-writing British exchange student Anna (Felicity Jones) meet at a Los Angeles university and, after a few blushingly sincere flirtations and a date, become a couple. When Anna overstays her Visa tenure in the country, and is barred from entry back into the U.S. after returning home from a family visit in the U.K., the young lovers find themselves suddenly thrown into a long-distance, cross-continental relationship, and navigating all the heart-aching complications that go along with it. With Jennifer Lawrence. The Grand Jury Prize winner at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival. “An exquisite, beautifully acted gem of a film.” -Variety
