As Halloween tears into theaters this weekend, you might want to keep an eye out for a smaller, lighter option. It’s called Change in the Air and, appropriately, it’s a nice change of pace from the season’s gore-filled horror flicks and heavy Oscar contenders. It’s a light, dreamy story about a quiet neighborhood upended by a mysterious newcomer (played by The Marvelous Ms. Maisel’s Rachel Brosnahan). It’s about the corrosive nature of secrets, the healing power of community and is a sweet, quiet delight. If it happens to land in a theater near you, you should check it out.

I had a chance to talk with Dianne Dreyer, the movie’s director. We rambled through lots of topics—her film, how terrible tragedy can impact your life for the better, and why people really need to write letters again. The conversation is edited a bit for length, but I think you’ll get a sense of how much fun she was to talk with.
