Phyllis and Harold

3 out of 5 stars

Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars
Video artist Cindy Kleine’s familial dissection probes her parents’ mismatched World War II–era marriage and the nonconformist notions that defined her mother to a tee; Phyllis seemed largely uninterested in raising kids and felt tormented by a forbidden love. Kleine forgoes good-old-days nostalgia in an effort to examine a generation that braved the new America sans a rule book. But it’s the central mystery of Cindy’s own life—did Phyllis ever love Harold?—that turns this sociological examination into something profoundly personal.
