Girl Is A Girl

A FILM BY Reg Harkema

[Harkema] brings his own highly personal bent to the piece, playing with his inspiration but still emerging as his own man with a unique vision."" ""

Trevor is a guy in his mid-twenties who has no problems meeting women and getting them into bed but he's searching for his ideal girlfriend in all the wrong places. Trevor charms three women in rapid succession: Clarissa, a sorority girl; Karen, an ex-girlfriend of his friend; and Lisa, the woman who comes closest to Trevor's ideal. But, as Trevor shares his love of sushi, fashion and vintage clothes with Lisa, he fails to notice her fading away to anorexia. Lisa pulls away from Trevor and he immediately moves to Laura, a member of a Grrrl band, who entices Trevor with ecstasy and bliss. Everything's great until he sees Lisa again. Unable to stop idolizing Lisa, Trevor faces the reality of losing the only relationship he has. A Girl is a Girl, with its indie soundtrack and incestuous twenty-something hipsters, does a compelling job of making the viewer wonder if love really exists.
