"IN MONTAUK exists uncomfortably yet appropriately within the gray areas of life where most of us find ourselves. Kim Cummings has assembled a stellar cast and crew to construct what is easily one of 2012's indie highlights."

- Richard Propes in The Independent Critic


In Montauk "is powerful and beautiful, tense in its emotions..."

- Mark Bell in Film Threat


"Writer/director Kim Cummings shows a flair for creating powerful and realistic relationships in her first full-length film."

-Cary Conley in Rogue Cinema

The hardest choices in life are the ones we never think we'll have to make.


Julie Wagner has everything today's young woman thinks she wants: a successful husband who adores her, a baby on the way, a close circle of family and friends, and a career as a photographer that is about to take off. So why is she alone in Montauk in the middle of December? During the cold, stark days, Julie throws herself into capturing her artistic vision for an upcoming solo show, yielding works of deep passion and instinct; at night, she restlessly taps away at her computer, plagued by uncertainty about the impending trajectories of her life.


When a prickly but brilliant composer-musician presents her with an odd request, Julie ushers in a series of events that will bring her in contact with her buried hopes and fears, and force her to make choices she couldn't have fathomed. At one shocking and wise, In Montauk is a now-familiar story turned inside-out by a main character who can't help but put herself into the most uncomfortable position of all - contronting life's imperfect choices in the hopes of grasping one through which she can be true to herself.
