Plot

A dysfunctional romantic comedy about Max, a college student in 1997 who's obsessed with Woody Allen's film Annie Hall. He believes the film holds all the answers to life, including the futility of romance. Just as he begins to suspect the film might actually be ruining his life, he meets Julie, a young woman who might be the modern day equivalent of Annie Hall herself, and goes into a romantic tailspin.
