Synopsis: When a beguiling young woman moves in next door, a quiet neighborhood is awakened, bringing people face to face with their secrets and, ultimately, themselves.

To note: Whimsical is the word I would use to describe the new film CHANGE IN THE AIR. The story line and characters feel timeless against the backdrop of treelined suburbia. Neighbors who move in and out of each others lives like family. When Wren (Rachel Brosnahan) rents a room over one of the houses, tongues and imaginations run wild. Who is the beautiful yet reclusive young girl and why does she get so much mail?! These questions drive the story and the mystery of this PG rated movie.

The performances move like a gentle fall breeze with each actor perfectly at home in their role. The subtleness of the performances adds to the ease and comfort of the over all experience. It may help that the caliber of actors joining Miss Brosnahan is stellar. Aidan Quinn, Olympia Dukakis, Mary Beth Hurt, Peter Gerety, M. Emmet Walsh, and Macy Gray each add something to this ensemble that makes Audra Gorma’s script come alive.

This was a surprising little film with a lot of heart and memorable characters. Though maybe better suited as a renter or demand option, I still give it a full recommendation for sure.
