The Memory Book

Synopsis: Budding photographer Chloe (Ory) comes from a family of failed romances. At a local flea market, she stumbles upon an old photo album from the 1970s, chronicling the ideal romance of a happy couple (Hindle and Barbeau). Unable to find her own "true love," she sets out to find the couple in the album and prove that true love exists. Along the way, she meets Gabe Sinclair (Macfarlane), a mysterious, but charming bartender, who seizes the opportunity to join Chloe's mission and soon finds himself falling in love with her. With limited resources, the two go on an adventure, searching for clues that will lead them to the couple, and hopefully to true love. As the search continues, Chloe begins taking an interest in Gabe, but won't let these feelings distract her from her mission to find the couple. Will Chloe learn to give up her fear of falling in love and finally find true happiness?

This is the house I grew up in

on Staten Island.

The house I left when I went

away to college.

The house my parents

were divorced in.

Relationships never last

in my family.

Could it be genetic?

And why put your heart out

there just to be broken?

I learnt that lesson

often and early.

And this is where I had

my first kiss.

Behind P.S. 53 at recess

with Tommy Nolan.

Who pushed me off the swings

when the other boys

made fun of him.

I sprained my wrist

and chipped two teeth.

This one is called "Love


I've been revisiting

my life lately.

Through my art.

Yeah, I see that.

And it's very interesting,

but umm...

Oh, you should also mention that

I am opening my own art studio

here in San Francisco

later this month.

I hate to stop you,

but I think you've confused me

for someone else.

Aren't you a critic?

But you said you were

a critic.

Back there someone

said "everybody's a critic"

and I agreed.

You just assumed.

Oh, oh.

I work around the corner,

actually, and I saw the crowd.

And to be honest, I saw you,


I'm sorry if I disappointed you.

No, no, I'm not disappointed.

It's the public's opinion

that really matters.

Just for fun, though,

if you were a critic...?

Oh, you don't want to hear

my opinion.

I'm just a guy off the street.

Well, what?

You don't like the photos?

No, no, I do.

They're um, they're

all in focus.

I'm sure they'd be great

for someone.

I'm sorry, this isn't

coming out right.

They're really nice.

And clearly I was aiming

for nice.

I hate to do this, but I

actually have to get to work.

The best of luck

with everything.


Hey, roomie.

I definitely need to come to

more of these gallery openings.

Champagne, free food.

Cute guys.

See anything you like tonight?

Now that you mention it...

I think he means

something that's for sale.

What, the art?

Way out of my league.

Excuse me, waiter!


how's business over here?

Well, no one seems to be

much impressed

by photography these days.

It's all the digital cameras

and photo programs.

When everybody can

do something

it stops being so special.

Not that everybody can do

what you do.

Oh God, that came

out so wrong.

No, no, I know

what you mean, sadly.

Well, gotta go.


Polo shirt, perfect hair.

So not interested.

C'mon, it's been months,

hasn't it?

The whole "Love" thing

is just so depressing.

I mean, who needs it?

Me, for one.

How do I look?

Well, I'm guessing 'desperate'

isn't the look

you're going for.

Don't wait up.

Sorry to keep you waiting.

Oh, it's you.

"Chloe Davenport, Moments

in Time"?

So this is the place

around the corner?

Gabe Sinclair.

I really put my foot in it

earlier, didn't I?

Did you? I didn't notice.

Yeah, um, let me make it up

to you.

A drink on the house.

Soda water?

Soda water it is!

A little wild.

I may need to see some i. d.

I like your photos.

Yeah, it's the city

over the years.

Customers seem to like it.

Lime? Too crazy?

So tell me, what was it

about my work?

The truth.

I can take it.

I don't know.

All those pictures of a bench,


The full spectrum of

human emotion.

Well, excuse me but I find

beauty in everyday objects.

And there's nothing wrong

with that.

I happen to prefer people.

It's hard to cozy up

to a wall.

Excuse me, can you

top me up?


Ah well, at least the wall's

always there for you.



I did it again, didn't I?


I'm not that good

with first impressions.

I'm waiting.

Just, excuse me.


Are you interested in anything

in particular?
