Leah Meyerhoff, Director, I Believe in Unicorns.

Festival Section: American Dreams.

FRED catches up with filmmaker Leah Meyerhoff to talk about the film I BELIEVE IN UNICORNS, presented at the Edinburgh International Film Festival.

A sensitive and poetic road movie.

Davina is an imaginative teenage girl who escapes from the realities of caring for her disabled mother into a fairy-tale-inspired fantasy life. She looks for another kind of escape in a new relationship with the charming denizen of a grungy rock-club underworld. Aware he has a volatile side from which even unicorns may fail to save her, Davina still chooses to take off with him on a journey of no certain destination. A fresh look at adolescent romance, touched with a delicacy and magic rare in films.

Reporter: Matt Micucci.
