Gabi on the Roof In July

Feature Film

“Levine deploys a poised eye and witty dialogue that sticks like a needle left sitting on a cushion...Wisely observant of human nature as it bounces between the leads, "Gabi" evokes Woody Allen with a more generous heart (and a lot more casual nudity).” —Steve Dollar, Wall Street Journal
“Expertly orchestrated....Gabi may rack up converts to bare-bones, improv-style cinema.” —Variety
“A likably offhanded indie comedy full of winning performances.” —New York Magazine

A portrait of young New York and the misguided hopefuls who can't afford to live there but do anyway, Gabi on the Roof in July is an ensemble comedy about ex-girlfriends, sibling rivalry and whipped cream in a city that's constantly in flux. Gabi, a rambunctious Oberlin undergrad, heads to New York City to spend the summer with her older brother, Sam, seeking solidarity in the wake of her parents’ divorce. When she gets there, she finds Sam too busy juggling women and too irked by her provocative antics and almost constant nudity to give her the guidance she needs. In an effort to get Sam's attention, Gabi seduces his free-loving, freeloading college buddy, only to find she's in over her head.
