Northwest Film Forum Capitol Hill
Recommended by Annie Wagner
Winner of best narrative feature and best cinematography at Slamdance, We Go Way Back is the tender story of a fringe-theater actress in Ballard who is knocked off her twentysomething rails by simple little letters she wrote to her older self at the age of 13. Amber Hubert is properly vague in the lead role, R. Hamilton Wright scores bountiful zingers as a capricious theater director, and Basil Harris is perfect in the small role of an empathetic friend. A must if you've ever attended Seattle theater, and a sweet, subtle choice for everyone else. Shelton was scheduled to join the Northwest Film Forum for a virtual chat alongside a screening of the film on Northwest Film Forum's Facebook page. In her memory, you can still watch the film there on May 21. You can also stream the film anytime on multiple platforms.
