SynopsisLynn Shelton's debut feature draws on her past as a stage actress but WE GO WAY BACK is no autobiographical drama. Kate (Amber Hubert) is a struggling actress who has given up her happiness and her sense of self for her career. That is until she finds a stash of letters written when she was a thirteen year old girl full of confidence and creativity and ambition. Plunged into depression, her younger self (Maggie Brown) infiltrates her dreams. What could have been a disconcerting bend in time and space and identity is instead played as a compassionate character piece and an act of healing. Beautifully shot on 35mm by Ben Kasulke (who made his debut as a cinematographer on the film).

"Inventive. The pungent notion of having your young-teen self gazing in horrified disappointment at the adult you’ve failed to become is as fresh a thematic undertow as it is disquieting.
- Michael Atkinson, Village Voice

 "A gentle survey of the chasm between youthful dreams and adult reality."
- Jeannette Catsoulis , The New York Times
