Movie Info

One-time high school valedictorian and "most likely to succeed," beautiful bookworm Sunny finds herself stuck in Pensacola in her mid-twenties, working at a bowling alley and caring for her terminally ill father. Sunny is taken off guard when she runs into a charming high school rival who is home from New York for the holidays, and finds herself at a crossroads between chasing her old dreams, or creating new ones that she never believed she would have.-- (C) Official Site (via FaceBook)

Critic Reviews for The New Year

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

A star is born in this observant and compassionate drama about a young woman trying to sort her way out of an involuntary limbo in her coastal Florida hometown.

April 30, 2012 | Full Review…

[The New Year is] richly endowed with true-to-life moments, a generosity of spirit and an unsentimental perspective on the quarter-life crisis.

April 30, 2012 | Full Review…

Out of raw materials -- convincing 20-something dialogue; deft montages of night life, bowling, parties, the beachside setting -- the director-screenwriter Brett Haley (with another screenwriter, Elizabeth Kennedy) has built an encouraging feature debut.

July 30, 2010 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

A slow-building stunner of a character study.

July 27, 2010 | Full Review…

Absorbing, wise, true-to-life and universally relatable with just the right balance of sweetness, tenderness and humor. Trieste Kelly Dunn shines in a charismatic, warm and genuinely heartfelt performance.
