Wendy McColm directs and stars in this poignant dark comedy about six misfits in desperate search of connection. McColm plays Janet, an indecisive, co-dependent media influencer and soon-to-be ex of Sam, a stand-up comic whose stage fright prevents him from doing his job. When they go their separate ways, Sam pairs off with Marty—who’s similarly professionally challenged as a caretaker at a nursing home who can’t stop playing the victim long enough to take care—while Janet runs into her old friend Jo, an identity thief. And then there’s Daniel, a would-be self-help guru with motivational problems, and Tom, a Russian pseudo-cowboy obsessed with Jeff Goldblum. As these eccentrics crash into each other in astoundingly awkward ways, their anguished attempts to comprehend one another shed light on the loneliness that defines our modern condition.
Director Wendy McColm will be in attendance for all screenings.
