Written and directed by Bradley Rust Gray, The Exploding Girl is an understated character study of an epileptic college student named Ivy who is spending her spring break back at home in New York City. Her buddy Al is also home for the week, and the two spend their time walking around the city, drinking beers, reading books, and playing card games with Ivy’s mom—typical home-for-a-week activities for the Liberal Arts crowd.   Ivy’s college ...
