2011, Ramin Serry, USA, 91 min.
With Andrew von Urtz, Cindy Chastain, Genevieve Hudson-Price
In this dark and witty urban comedy by the award-winning director of MARYAM, Andrew (newcomer von Urtz), a would-be filmmaker with the slippery soul of a con artist, is pulled into the sphere of a bizarre clan of siblings following an unwise one-night stand with the family’s spoiled princess. Director Serry layers a growing sense of dread beneath the snappy repartee as Andrew falls victim to some odd obsessions and fixations on the part of his new “in-laws,” even as he continues to mount schemes to play his wary friends for suckers.
