Kim and Bill are two musicians who have sadly reached the end of their marriage, attempting to separate as amicably and painlessly as possible in order to help their daughter Abby, who has come home for the summer following her freshman college year, to deal with it. However, when their Northern Irish niece Taryn runs away from her home in Ocean City, Maryland, desperately missing her family in Baltimore, there are more tears falling as she also struggles to cope with her disintegrating family. Abby does her best to keep Taryn and herself occupied by taking her to rock concerts and introducing her to boys, but in the end everyone has to learn to face their troubles head on; know when to let go of the precious things in life and know when to keep going.
'I Used To Be Darker' is a heart-breaking family drama and love and separation in every sense and it has been directed by Matthew Porterfield ('Hamilton', 'Putty Hill') who co-wrote the screenplay alongside Amy Belk in her film debut. The movie won Best Director at the 2013 Buenos Aires International Festival of Independent Cinema while also being nominated for Best Film at the same event.
