It is written by Alex Ross Perry and directed by Mark Pellington (Nostalgia), the emotional, spiritual and existential aspect we attach to objects.
The film is a vignetting that is divided into two halves among the members of two different families. Towards the middle of movie, there is a scene where one person of each family is gathered to do a commercial transaction. They have a touching, touching conversation, then they never see it again. Superficially and on a scale, this conversation is the only thing that connects two families together. But Nostalgia is not a conceptual film, but a traditional narrative. The film is not worried about the plot. Investigation of the underlying themes is important here.
