Film Review: Bruce

The harsh reality of finding a balance between the paper chase and life as a starving artist is confronted in this heartwarming comedy about a soon to be father who makes contact with his inner child in the form of an imaginary friend named Bruce. From director Christopher Bayon, Bruce, is story about an artist trying to make ends meet to please his partner, Ali, by taking a job in a corporate office with her mother. Though they couldn’t seem more different, it is apparent that they are both just trying to figure it out in a world that loves to dictate where we should be, and what we should be doing. Remaining true to himself, Charlie embarks on a chaotic journey that leads him right back to where he started, and where he is really meant to be.

A few parts satire, and a few parts comedy, this tale makes you think outside the box and embrace your creativity. With an ultimate message to always be true to yourself, Bruce is a lighthearted film that engages young and old audiences alike. Spoiler alert, you can find a middle ground to feel accomplished, without completely selling out. It’s tough to say, but we all may just benefit from a night out with Bruce.

Bruce is an official selection of the 2017 New York City Independent Film Festival.
