In need of a break from his life in the city, 30-year-old Robbie agrees to do odd jobs at Gottlieb’s Home for Girls, a refuge for pregnant teens run by his Aunt Carla. The quiet dwelling, nestled in the woods of upstate New York, seems to be the perfect locale for Robbie to sort through his recent marital problems. But the mere presence of a brooding older man causes quite a stir among the five pregnant girls living in the house. Erratic, blue-haired Jean is immediately smitten with Robbie. Yet, the other girls can’t help but notice the attention Robbie gives to intelligent and ethereal Nina, who has her own relationship problems. As pleading phone calls from Robbie’s wife Mona persist, Robbie and Nina’s bond strengthens. And Robbie soon finds himself coping with increasingly UNCERTAIN TERMS. Filmmaker Nathan Silver’s naturalistic, understated character study explores the complexities of discovering oneself in the midst of love. – E.B.
