'Port Authority' Movie Review
Port Authority opens with Paul (Fionn Whitehead) with a suitcase, walking through the titular New York bus terminal, calling someone that doesn’t pick up the phone. No one walking through the station has seen the woman pictured on the phone, either. Paul’s on his own.
Paul briefly steps outside the station and catches the eye of Wye (Leyna Bloom), who is hanging out with her rag-tag group of dancing friends. But Paul is still too shocked to be on his own, and having nowhere else to go, he tries to sleep on a subway train. Harassed then attacked by a couple of homophobic jerks, Paul is rescued by Lee (McCaul Lombardi) who sets him up with a bed in a shelter and offers him work.
So starts the story of Paul coming to New York and eventually finding a family of sorts. The bad news is that the film is more focused on Paul and his emotional journey, rather than Wye, who is frankly much more interesting.
