*Online Premiere* An invited guest begins to feel increasingly unwelcome and unstable after being confronted by a painting of herself. “Young Shadow,” by director Nicholas Motyka, is a go for broke melodrama about an old friendship and a haunting piece of art. Lou is in town for the weekend and has arranged to stay with her artist friend, George — which is news to George’s boyfriend, Dev. The tension between them increases throughout the night and culminates with the revelation that George has an art show tomorrow that he failed to mention to Lou. Already disturbed by George’s painting of her, an expressive portrait of her standing naked, Lou is even more upset when she learns where the painting is headed, inspiring a wild response. Megan DeCino stars as Lou in a fiercely uninhibited performance (a complete 180 from her understated presence in the recent “Wash Your Fruit”); the film around her is a visceral free-for-all, full of passion and unpredictable energy.
