  • Summary: Lucien and Regina are foragers - They gather wild mushrooms in the woodlands of New Jersey and sell them to restaurants in New York. Their lifestyle is simple, their income unstable. To improve their financial security and to follow a more fulfilling personal career path, Regina decides to take a job cooking at a high-end restaurant. Lucien disapproves and instead, he proposes to give up their apartment and live as full-time itinerant foragers. As individual desires take them down divergent paths over the course of a year, their marriage slowly comes apart. (Argot Pictures) Collapse

    Now, Forager is a uncompromising film about two people who don't deserve each other - but maybe nobody deserves either one of them.

    Despite an awkwardly jokey title, Now, Forager has charm, intelligence and a cool passion for its principled characters - an appealing off-menu slice for hungry indie admirers.

    Boasts an evocative sense of environment and the feel of working with one's hands, but otherwise rummages around in search of substance and subtlety.

    This uneven, slow-brewed film begins by observing a brittle relationship about to crumble, but it is better at portraying how the exacting standards of food professionals can lead to personal grief.

    The novelty of their industry aside, there's little to differentiate this from any other relationship-centered Amerindie.

    A slow-food procedural, commendably devoted yet still underdone.
