The thing that makes “Becks” such a hit with audiences, according to co-director and co-writer Elizabeth Rohrbaugh? It’s relatability.

“It totally touches a chord with all types of people who have hit their mid-thirties,” she told Cheddar Monday. “Their life isn’t the perfect thing that they thought it would be, and they have to take steps to try and figure out who they are. That’s what connected me to the story.”

“Becks” is based on the story of musician Alyssa Robbins, who breaks up with her long-term girlfriend, struggles to earn a living, and is forced to move into her mother’s house. The movie, starring “American Beauty” actress Mena Suvari and Broadway star Lena Hall, has received accolades from film critics and scores a 93 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

Rohrbaugh said during the interview that the LGBT community, a “key audience” for the film, has also gotten behind it.

“Becks” is available on Apple’s iTunes, Amazon Prime, and on-demand.
