Arriving at New York’s JFK airport after a short trip out of state, a woman we know simply as “Girlie” (Golden Globe winner and BAFTA nominee DAKOTA JOHNSON, Persuasion, A Bigger Splash, Bad Times at the El Royale, the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy) strikes up an in-transit conversation with Clark (two-time Oscar winner SEAN PENN, Milk, Mystic River, The Tree of Life, 21 Grams, Dead Man Walking), the cabbie driving her back to her apartment in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen neighborhood. Talkative and tough but generous with his advice and worldview, Clark offers Girlie his take on relationships between men and women, on the changing demographics and landscape of New York … and on what he hears from Girlie about her life. As the sharp, astute Girlie and the complex Clark navigate the very human connection between passenger and driver in the world’s biggest city, they locate a common ground that helps each of them see the other’s point of view — bringing them both closer to figuring out themselves. A featurette interview with the director will follow the screening.
