The reviews are in for Katharine's directorial debut!
“'Life in Color' showcases both Emmer and McDermitt’s talents in roles that are unconventional leads, their salty, though eventually sweet demeanors are a much-needed counterpart to traditional archetypes. Much of the film works because of their performances, though “Life in Color” also signals Emmer as a writer and filmmaker to watch, as the script and direction show a strong sense of voice, and control over a difficult dark comedic tone. “Life in Color” is an idiosyncratic, emotionally rich and satisfying dramedy that manages, in many ways, to exceed its own scope.” -INDIEWIRE
“Emmer's character Mary, a recently fired nanny struggling with depression, feels like a real person with a unique perspective on her inner demons. Pair her with Josh McDermitt's Homer, an out of work clown with his own set of issues, and the two are allowed to bounce off one another about their troubles in a funny way that never for a second feels false...The two have an undeniable rhythm with one another that's a joy to watch.” -Rope of Silicon
