the van life


The “van life” promises freedom from the daily grind, but is it just man-children running away from the real world?  In this smart comedy, two feminist grad students -- Georgie, a hyper-competent straight white anthropologist, and Nicole, a queer half-Iranian Muslim sociologist -- infiltrate a group of obsessed VW vanagon-owners.  They’re on a quest to complicate van life mythology, but they have to learn some hard truths about themselves along the way.

Think Thelma and Louise plus camper vans minus suicide.
