Synopsis


Synopsis


Work. Love. Sex. Death. Birth.

What separates us? 

Salvaging a marriage takes time and trust, two things that John and Emily no longer have.  Emily is a writer with a career threatening case of writer's block and deadlines approaching.  The pressure to finish her novel grows when John sinks into depression and quits his job... right before their first baby is due.  

As they head toward a mutual meltdown, John is given a terminal diagnosis that forces him to reassess his life and attempt to save his marriage—before it’s too late. However, inner peace proves elusive, the marriage might be too far gone, and John's life may not be what it seems.

This cerebral drama examines work, love, sex, family, death, birth and all of the things that can bring people together... or drive them apart.

You really couldn’t ask for a better independent, low budget film. A great film visually featuring a unique and fresh concept acted out by some truly talented people. Twin Cities is what indie film is all about.
— IndyRed.com
A most unusual indie feature that takes some huge risks in the structure of its screenplay, the motivations of its characters, and the atmosphere of its story. I am in admiration of the sheer audacity of the storytelling. There is no denying the filmmaking skill and originality on display here. A must-see (and more than once).
— Diamonds In The Rough
A far more interesting film than La La Land at less than 3 percent of the budget. The trademark irony of fellow Minneapolis favorite sons the Cohen brothers seems toothless compared to Ash, whose sensibility is a mixture of Kafka and Kierkegaard.
— NY Film Critics Online
Twin Cities features a mind-blowing narration and is a film to talk about around the water cooler at work, and sing high praises for within the indie community. This is an ambitious production and Ash is a true independent filmmaker.

Twin Cities is a revelation and a cinematic indie achievement. A great multi-faceted movie about love and loss. It is filled with warmth, wit, and real emotion and is a wonderfully creative cinematic experience. A film of such depth and quality that it begs to be watched over and over again. Bethany Ford Binkley is completely mesmerizing as Emily. I have rarely seen such a commanding performance in an indie film.

Twin Cities Movie Poster

The artist Clinton Lugert of THEY design chose to focus on the film's alternate perspectives as well as the rift in the primary relationship. This lead him to base the Key Art and poster design on the ancient Roman god Janus.

Janus, the two-faced god looks both to the future and the past and therefore presides over: time, transitions, gateways, and the beginning and ending of conflict. 

In the film, Emily is an author who controls her own perspective on reality, which gives her a god-like quality. While John is dealing with beginnings and endings within himself. This visual is then paired with an intersecting Venn diagram to create a graphically simple, but successful visual statement.
