Forgetting the Girl is a 2009 film, directed by Nate Taylor, adapted for the screen by Peter Moore Smith, from his short story of the same name. It wrapped principal photography in August 2009, and is currently in post-production.
Set in New York City’s Hell's Kitchen, the film follows the story of headshot photographer Kevin Wolfe (Christopher Denham). Kevin speaks directly to the audience through a series of slide projections and memory cues, explaining his futile struggle to find love and happiness. He narrates the story of his love life, weaving together episodes from his childhood, his checkered romantic past, and his most recent encounters with girls. He explains that no matter how hard he tries, no matter how many girls he dates, emotional fulfillment continually eludes him. He discerns that all of his troubles with women stem back to the traumatic childhood death of his little sister. He is convinced the only way he can possibly discover happiness is by driving these bad memories from his mind - he must find a way to forget. However, forgetting a girl, especially one from his traumatic past, proves to be much more difficult than Kevin expects.
