With no place to call home, 19-year-old Elena takes a job as a live-in aide. She finds herself thrust into the middle of a family in crisis: all the things that go on between a father, grandmother, mother, and cat. Eventually, Elena strikes something of a balance though... That is, until the
prodigal son returns home. Placing fictional characters alongside real people, 'Exit Elena' is shot with all the rough edges inherent to family
life and home movie form.

"Whisper-quiet and weirdly endearing." 
-The New York Times

"Delicate observance and domestic chaos meet head-on in this gem-like character piece"
-The Wall Street Journal

"Silver locates the ordinary madness bubbling just beneath the surface of his own life, and flickers of lunacy abound." 
-The Village Voice

"An exquisite gem of a movie." 
-Filmmaker Magazine

"A testament of achievement with a shoe string budget." 

"Beautifully observed and charming." 
-The Playlist

"Claustrophobically discomfiting but quizzically comic study of social unease and embarrassment" 
-The Hollywood Reporter

"It's as though Silver is not in complete control of his own dramatic situation, which gives his film a very unusual sense of aliveness" 
-Cinema Scope
