Writer-director Chris Mason Johnson's award-winning first feature (Best Lead Actress, Nicole Bilderback, Outfest; Best Director, First Feature, Ft. Lauderdale) charts the lives of five New Yorkers, a mix of gay and straight best friends about to turn thirty. With emotionally vivid performances and nuanced characters, The New Twenty paints the portrait of a generation living the highs and lows of a Wall Street world destined to disappear overnight.

The year is 2006 and prosperity seems unending: two of the five are investment bankers, another works in advertising, another does freelance database design, and only one of the five might be called a slacker. But they all suffer from, as loner Felix puts it, "a touch of existential malaise courtesy of late capitalism. You know, the usual." So if money isn’t the root of their discontent, what is? Whatever they’re searching for - love, meaning in work - they won’t find it in each other. On TV, friendship lasts forever. In real life, not so much.
