Filled with humor and powerful drama, an intensely realistic look at modern love through the lens of two romantics navigating their way through a new relationship.

A hyper-realistic diversion from the usual rom-com, 12 MONTHS candidly portrays moments that are commonly experienced but rarely shown as it follows the story of Ellie and Clark, a millennial couple, navigating the peaks and valleys of a new relationship. Shot chronologically in real-time monthly vignettes, the film takes the audience through the first date to the soul-bearing conversations, the hookups, the breakdowns, and the moments in between, however beautiful or painful they may be.

Taking risks to include the portrait of a sometimes-awkward developing sexual relationship and not shying away from topics of sexism, racism, and mental health as they arise, 12 MONTHS is a love story rooted in the real world, not in a Hollywood fairytale.
