Burning Annie is the story of Max, a college student in 1998 who believes all of life's answers are in Annie Hall, including the futility of romance. Just as Max begins to suspect the film is ruining his life, he meets a young woman who might be the modern Annie and goes into a romantic tailspin.
"A thoroughly professional comedy. Well-paced, attractive and smartly acted." - Matt Zoller Seitz, The New York Times
"Bittersweet riff in an anxiously auspicious debut. Appealing performances nail an exceptionally canny script." - Nathan Lee, Village Voice
"A surprising little charmer. Sharp Writing and genuinely sweet sensibility." - Bilge Ebiri, New York Magazine
