As Elaine grapples with romantic feelings for her best friend May, she begins to confront her own identity, and the lies she’s told to protect it. While Elaine is bouncing back and forth between her boyfriend Jay and her best friend May, trying to balance the lies she's told and the identity she isn't ready to face, everything catches up to her. Carelessly There is a story about breakups, real and imaginary, romantic and platonic. From causing a scene at brunch to fighting with her boyfriend and passing out on her best friend’s stoop, we watch Elaine’s indecision and selfishness wreak havoc on her life.
Carelessly There is an exploration of female friendship, queer identity, and how we romanticize those closest to us. The film allows its’ protagonist to do the hardest thing of all: not make a choice. We can then see how our inaction has consequences. How not being honest with yourself – even with the smallest choices – can become a type of paralysis. I feel honored to be trusted to tell this story and make it with the women closest to me in my life. I cannot wait for an audience to witness and relate to the mess Elaine has created.
