“We The Coyotes” by first-time feature filmmakers Hanna Ladoul and Marco La Via, was inspired by the adventure and challenges of their own early days in Los Angeles. Enveloped in the love bubble a young couple, played by Morgan Saylor (“Homeland”) and McCaul Lombardi (“Sollers Point”), arrive from their cross-country trip from the midwest to stay with her aunt Betsy Brandt (“Breaking Bad”), where we continually see them encounter the challenges of their first day in Los Angeles. The city is as much a character in this intimate drama as this young couple, as they find their hopes often crushed under the realities of what you encounter in any major city, much less the city of dreams. Not unlike countless twentysomethings over the decades, our westward-bound couple in “We the Coyotes“ arrive in Los Angeles with half-formed plans and half-empty pockets, but we see how tensions bend and shape them while the will to survive drives them on.
