“Nate Taylor Director of Forgetting the Girl Talks About His New Film
The beautifully dark psychodrama Forgetting The Girl (Full Stealth Films) is a fascinating dissection into the traumatized mind of photographer Kevin Wolfe (Shutter Island’s Christopher Denham). First-time feature film director, Nate Taylor, who admittedly got chills up his spine the first time he read the script, takes the viewer along with him on the journey following Wolfe as he attempts to navigate through a world in which he is a prisoner to both his past as well as his own mind. Haunted by a childhood too painful to really look at, Wolfe is in a state of constant struggle as he attempts to systematically forget any and all of the bad memories from his past.
The attempt to eradicate from his mind all of these horrifying memories consumes his present as well as any hopes he may have of any sort of a happy future. Dealing with the death of his little sister as a young boy, the seed is planted for his obsession as a man to find a girl who can help him to love another, as well as himself. Tragically, each of his encounters with the opposite sex end in disaster, pushing him deeper and deeper into a well of despair – a well that proves too deep to ever crawl out of.
With the many mounting rejections that ensure his search for happiness as futile, his search for love becomes overwhelmingly turbulent and his desperation takes over. Wanting desperately to connect to another, he is the definition of an emotionally bottled up individual who is completely closed off and unable to truly open up to anyone. Denham has been quoted as calling this character a photographer who cannot see, a man who has worn this mask of normalcy for so long that he no longer sees it as a mask.
In an interview with Taylor, the tortured mind of Wolfe is revealed. “Kevin cannot handle intimate relationships. The only person in his life that he has any sort of real connection with is Jamie (Lindsay Beamish).” Taylor goes on to further explain that many of the characters in this film are unhappy internally and therefore struggle to find happiness externally. The main character cannot handle being accepted any better than he is able to handle rejection, which further solidifies Taylor’s point. In each of these characters is a certain desperate yearning for happiness that Taylor admits resonated personally with him. “I was moved to the point after reading this script where I knew that I had to turn this story into a film.”
