A lazy young Brooklyn film school graduate shoots a documentary to help win back her ex in this feature debut from director Dolly Wells.

Recently graduated Lilian (Grace Van Patten) comes to New York to move in with her boyfriend (Gary Richardson). Fed up with her sense of entitlement, lack of drive and reliance on her absentee father, he quickly breaks up with her, leaving her desperate for a new home. Enter Julia (Emily Mortimer), a reclusive author who expects cooking and cleaning in exchange for a room. Though communicating largely through notes, the odd couple gradually forge a bond and help one another to negotiate the foibles, phobias and obstacles that have long hindered their happiness - all whilst Lilian attempts to make an unauthorised documentary on Julia to impress her cynical ex...

A warm-hearted study of two very different woman, Good Posture is a celebration of sisterhood, and a remarkable first film from Wells, who is already drawing comparisons to Greta Gerwig.
