Trying to find a fulfilling balance between professional and personal responsibilities can become a continuous battle between married couples, especially right after they have their first child. Both partners want to remain connected to their old hopes and dreams, while also figuring out how to adapt to their new identities. That battle is relatably showcased in the new comedy-drama, ‘Sidewalk Traffic,’ which follows a New York City-based couple as they try to figure out how to best provide for their new family, while also remaining true to themselves.
In honor of the film’s recent release on VOD and iTunes this past Tuesday, Shockya is premiering an exclusive clip, which features lead performers, Johnny Hopkins and Erin Darke, as they debate their future together. The clip follows the concerns of Darke’s character, Dalia, who recently returned to work after giving birth to the couple’s first daughter a few months ago. She’s upset that her husband, Hopkins’ Declan, is still pursuing his seemingly futile dream of becoming a successful filmmaker, while she’s supporting their family. She offers him encouragement to seek employment elsewhere, while also revealing that she would find it to be romantic if he tried to take more of an interest in connecting with their friends.
‘Sidewalk Traffic’ marks the feature film writing and directorial debut of Anthony L. Fisher. In addition to Hopkins and Darke, the movie also stars Heather Matarazzo, Samm Levine, Dave Hill, Tom Shillue and Kurt Loder.
Random Media, the distribution company that released ‘Sidewalk Traffic,’ has unveiled the following synopsis for the award-winning comedy-drama:
When Declan, a 30 year old husband and new father is squeezed out of a promotion, he finds himself wracked by internal crises, including career envy, bitterness over bad breaks and the still-lingering fallout from the suicide of his former creative partner. Searching for salvation, Declan surrenders to the role of stay-at-home dad, and is forced to face his demons while pushing strollers around New York City, changing diapers and heating up bottles, all while working to resurrect his dreams.
