Lucien and Regina gather wild mushrooms in the woodlands of New Jersey and sell them to restaurants in New York. Their lifestyle is simple, their income unstable. Regina decides to take a full-time job cooking at a high-end restaurant to improve their financial security and to follow a more fulfilling personal career path. Feeling threatened, Lucien proposes that instead of selling out, they give up their apartment and drive to the more-profitable West Coast as full-time itinerant foragers. As individual desires take them down divergent paths over the course of a year, their marriage is put to a test.

"Now, Forager is a creative, experimental, and heartfelt film that I enjoyed every minute of. There's a texture to the film that is very personal and unique and I couldn't help but remarking when I left the theater, "No studio would EVER make this film, but they really ought to." It's really what independent filmmaking is all about--telling stories people aren't telling in ways that no one would pay for them to be told. In this case, over the course of an actual year to reflect the seasons--a character unto themselves--in their truest form. Way to go, Now, Forager. I'll be first in line for the next one."
Mike Birbiglia -

"***½, Outstanding, Two Thumbs Up--The images of wild mushrooms by Cortlund himself and the shots of food prep by cinematographer Jonathan Nastasi, approach art. Now, Forager is an uncompromising film about two people who don't deserve each other..."
Roger Ebert - CHICAGO SUN-TIMES

"Now, Forager has charm, intelligence and a cool passion for its principled characters — an appealing off-menu slice for hungry indie admirers."
Robert Abele - LOS ANGELES TIMES
