"Joyce Wong’s feature film is about two young adults lost in their loneliness—Betty and Danny. At a dilapidated strip mall, Betty (Reid Asselstine) meets Danny (Darrel Gamotin), a bartender, when she’s hired for a security guard position. Desperate for a connection, Betty immediately finds herself drawn to Danny, but unfortunately after a drunken and misunderstood sexual encounter, the two find their lives falling to pieces. WEXFORD PLAZA is a charming, sweet coming-of-age millennial tale that explores a young adult’s anxieties: creating connections in a social media-driven era. Wong’s subtly crafted film explores awkward interactions, desperation, and regret with nuance, and her strikingly refreshing take on sexuality makes her debut stand out." – J. Nulf
