Watch Nobody Walks
Nobody Walks is a U.S. independent film that was written by Lena Dunham and Ry Russo-Young, who also directed the movie. The film features an ensemble cast including John Krasinski as Pete, Olivia Thirlby as Martine, Rosemarie DeWitt as Julie, Pete's wife, India Ennenga as Kolt and Justin Kirk as an unnamed screenwriter. The story takes place in the Silver Lake area near Los Angeles and Hollywood California. Pete is a sound engineer who works out of his home. Julie is a therapist with an outside office. Her daughter, Kolt is a rather unsatisfied teenager, struggling to figure out her own identity in the often strange world of Southern California. The story begins as Martine who is 23, arrives into L.A. from New York. She is to collaborate with Pete - the second husband of an acquaintance who will help with the sound design on her art film. Her film involves bugs and requires special sound effects. From the time she arrives, Martine is subjected to unwanted advances, including on the plane ride over. Since she doesn't drive, Martine moves into the family's pool house to work on her film with Peter. This puts her in uncomfortably close contact with Pete - but it is necessary in order to complete the work. During this time, he develops a special intimacy with Martine that almost immediately becomes sexual. Pete's stepdaughter Kolt is a 16-year-old who writes poetry and swoons after her stepdad, Pete's assistant David (played by Rhys Wakefield). However, he is into Martine. Pete's wife, Julie, is being pursued by her screenwriter patient. Kolt's school friend Avi (Sam Lerner) and her creepy Italian tutor (played by Emanuele Secci) both have a crush on Kolt. She is oblivious to this since she only has eyes for David. By the film's end, it is apparent that the infidelity has changed the family structure. Julie is none too pleased with her house guest, making it obvious that she does not approve of what has transpired.
