"The quest for a soulmate, for the perfect partner, can be a lifelong search. But what happens when you decide that you are no longer in love with your perfect boyfriend, that you are not 'lifers'? With her first feature film, Andrea Dorfman has created a charming and heartfelt tale about the difficulty of falling out of love. [...] Kate wants to end her relationship and her pregnancy, and her friends try to offer support in their own quirky ways. Chloe, an herbalist, assures Kate that parsley can induce a miscarriage. So Kate embarks on her parsley days, a steady diet of parsley sandwiches, tea, snacks, and even baths. Populated by a cast of wonderful characters, Parsley Days is a touching film with a comedic twist that asserts the need for independence while recognizing that love and compassion are still possible even in the final days of a relationship."

"While most movies aimed at young adults would make you believe sex is nothing less than a breathless and sweaty moment of rousing spiritual epiphany, Parsley Days deals with the messy reality of copulation and the flipside to romantic love."
