It's got the Kinney of Sleater-Kinney in it, and a Shin.
Matt McCormick's first feature-length narrative is a character-driven film that asks why the good times slip by so fast while the hard times always seem so sticky. The film explores ideas of abundance, emptiness, human connection and abandonment while observing an interweaving web of awkward characters that maintain hope by inventing their own forms of communication and self-fulfillment. Written and directed by Portland's acclaimed filmmaker Matt McCormick and starring Carrie Brownstein (Sleater-Kinney) and James Mercer (The Shins), Some Days are Better than Others is a sad valentine to the forgotten discards of a throwaway society and a story about knowing when to hold on, and when to let go.
