Fast-forward six months. These reveries have crashed, hard, into reality. Phillip, whose novel garnered instant acclaim and turned him into a mini-celebrity, has had a terrifying breakdown and is just about to be released from a psychiatric hospital. Erik, who never sold his novel, is still pecking away, determined to follow in the footsteps of his undying hero, a reclusive but idolized writing genius, no matter what it takes.
Reprise explores not just what happens to Phillip and Erik as they pick up the pieces but what might have happened to them, what they imagine could happen, what they fear will possibly happen and what they cant see actually happening. Nimbly moving both backwards and forwards in time via a dazzling mix of flashbacks, rapid-fire editing, philosophical voiceovers and comical flights of fancy -- the film traces how Erik and Phillip arrived at this precipice where exuberant youth runs into the harsh light of day... and witnesses the emotionally gripping aftermath.
