A quiet rebellion is simmering at Aunt Carla’s home for pregnant teens. His marriage disintegrating, handsome Robbie flees Brooklyn and an unfaithful wife for his aunt’s wooded upstate retreat. There he does odd jobs, ignores his wife’s phone calls, shares ill-advised cigarettes, and stirs up longing in-and intense rivalry among-the wayward girls. Stripping down a typically salacious subject, director Nathan Silver exposes the far more intimate complexities of human attraction, while deft camerawork and naturalistic performances capture the tangled dynamics of this once peaceful refuge. In the midst of all the fervor, Silver’s own mother provides the earthy, pragmatic center of the film as Aunt Carla, in a part inspired by her real-life experiences. Confidently traversing its rocky terrain, Uncertain Terms embraces life’s imperfect variety and emboldens the heart to find its home.
