Howie Sheffield's road to adulthood is off to a rocky start. His arm is in a cast. His parent's growing tension hangs heavy in their New York brownstone. And he's infatuated with an alluring mystery woman who rides the same bus as him. As the title suggests, All These Small Moments carefully curates episodes from Howie's turbulent family life, his precarious dealings at school, and the interactions he manages with the mysterious blonde on the bus. These moments feel innately human and fresh thanks to an understated approach from first-time director Melissa Miller Costanzo. Working from her own script, Costanzo creates an engrossing tale of tumultuous adolescence and self-discovery, aided by a talented cast that includes Molly Ringwald (Riverdale), Jemima Kirke (Girls), Brian d'Arcy James (Spotlight, MVFF 2014), and Brendan Meyer (The OA) as Howie.
