Believing in true love with all her heart, Kerstin (Lana Cooper)has been actively waiting for her ex (Till Wonka) to come back for months now. She has made herself comfortable with sickly sweet daydreaming, when suddenly her mother, Charlotte (Saskia Vester), rings at her door, needing a place to stay. For mom has accidentally broken up with her common-law spouse and does not know where else to go now. Both women handle their yearning completely differently, when Kerstin‛s housemate (Christin Nichols) convinces Charlotte to start dating men, via app. So, mom brings different men to the house, while Kerstin‛s daydreams are consistently interrupted by the reality that love has become a hopeless place for modern age dreamers.

“Beat Beat Heart” is an unusual love story focusing upon the heart and dreams of three different women. It’s engaging story filmed with gorgeous style draws you closer to the characters as you relate to them all in some way. Finding humor within our lives is the reality of this film while affirming .)our own life’s choices and the consequences.” (Pamela Powell)

“Lana Cooper, the cutest girl’s girl actress ever, deftly portrays a quirky-loner-dreamer coping with heartbreak following the loss of a perceived twin flame, all while surrounded by a claustrophobic circle of small town friends. This beautiful movie POVs her lonely bubble while the relationships in her small circle play out, including a dating app addicted roommate, a sexy mom with her own romantic coming of age saga, and a perfect couple whose relationship ultimately can’t be held to the fire. As she holds onto faith with childlike freedom in a world of unrealized magic, I’m on her side the whole way through. I wait and hope in a meditative pause, staring up at the sky for a stark blue answer to rain down, laying with her on the deliciously dangerous train tracks. Yearning to get out of the city yet living in beautiful open land, discovering a familiar set of problems: no matter where you go, there you are. All of us with creative and loving hearts that go on beating and beating, sometimes, in spite of themselves.
– Delila Vallot, Programmer”
Thank you for these lovely words!
