An undifferentiated extension of the same themes, concerns and artistic strategies featured in Henry Jaglom’s previous films, New Year’s Day is nonetheless notable for introducing a luminous new actress, Maggie Jakobson.

Jaglom again stars as a depressed Me Generation obsessive who returns to New York from Los Angeles in the midst of a mid-life crisis.

Arriving on New Year’s morning, Jaglom finds his apartment still occupied by three young ladies who thought they had until the end of the day to vacate the premises. Instead of booting them out, Jaglom immediately imposes himself upon their most personal concerns, especially those of Jakobson, whose boyfriend continues to fool around with other women throughout the open house the trio holds on their last day as roommates.

Lots of people show up for a drink or two in the course of the day, including Jakobson’s parents and shrink, helmer’s brother Michael Emil as a randy ‘psychosexologist,’ and director Milos Forman.
