Sat., Feb. 18, 2017

“Forever is the Worst Long Time” is a love story told from several very different points of view. Camille Pagan unpacks a complicated relationship among a struggling novelist named James; his best friend, Rob; and their shared adoration for Rob’s fiancee, Louisa (Lou). James keeps his feelings hidden for an entire decade, until one fateful night when Rob betrays Lou. James can’t remember a time when Rob wasn’t a major part of his life. Their friendship was strong, until Lou came along. James fell in love immediately and was heartbroken when Rob announced his engagement to Lou. James knew Rob and Lou were wrong for each other, but he kept his emotions at bay. When Lou asked to meet with James years later and secrets of Rob’s infidelity were revealed, James did his best to comfort his best friend’s wife. Waking up next to her in bed the next morning was not a part of his plan.
