Terence Nance's An Oversimplification of Her Beauty Opens at Phoenix's FilmBar May 31

How would you feel if the object of your affection canceled plans with you? How would you feel if, earlier that day, you expended a lot of energy preparing for those plans -- plus you were late for work and class and just had an overall disappointing day and this cancellation was just the super-sad cherry on top? This is the true-life thesis of Terence Nance's first film An Oversimplification of Her Beauty, which is hashed out with additions by Namik Minter, the real girl who really broke plans with Nance.
