When the audience first meets them, Marianne and Ellie are bright, charming college roommates prone to breaking out in tap-dance routines in the middle of study sessions. They come from very different backgrounds and are headed into very different futures — wealth, marriage, and anthropological adventures for one; family troubles, solo living, and a career as a musician for the other. But the bond they forged upon meeting is the rare sort that transcends all circumstance and thrives across time — even, in their case, across several continents.
Or does it? What happens when you realize that the friendship you valued on the merit of its fortitude through decades means something else entirely to the person on the other end? F Theory gives center stage to friendship, a relationship often sidelined in both art and life to make way for family, romance, and marriage, though it may be stronger than them all.
