Quietly released in early 2018, Alex Ross Perry’s Golden Exits is the type of film that easily gets overlooked this time of year. An ode of sorts to Rohmer, the writer-director’s latest follows the intersecting lives of some New Yorkers, all of whom are connected in some way to visiting Australian, Naomi (Emily Browning). This may be Perry’s “warmest” film to date, but his trademark, acidic dialogue is still on full display. Most rewarding are the subtle parallels that emerge between the older and younger characters, as if the latter are looking at their potential future selves in a mirror.
