Liminality is a coming of age comedy/drama which follows an ensemble of interconnected twentysomethings, each experiencing a quarter-life crisis, as they cross paths in the city of London throughout one day.
The movie combines the raw candid honesty of the mumblecore movement (Tiny Furniture, Hannah Takes the Stairs) and an “in the moment” cinematic style (This Movie is Broken) with the classic day-in-the-life ensemble story (Dazed and Confused, Magnolia) to create an original and provocative character study.
The story of Liminality focuses on nine main characters as their lives connect through work, family, friends, romances, and sometimes even simple chance.
