Posted on

Welcome to the world of indie comedy, where quirk meets ridiculous and the results are remarkable. From a modern day Mark Twain story to tales of fantastic powers and extraordinary beasts, these yarns are sure to tickle you in all the right places.

Sorry to Bother You

In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a universe of greed.

Bizarre, razor sharp, and uncomfortably hilarious all at once, Sorry to Bother You is an unforgettable film watching experience.” Cinema Sentries

The Peanut Butter Falcon

After running away from a residential nursing home to pursue his dream of becoming a pro wrestler, a man who has Down syndrome befriends an outlaw who becomes his coach and ally.

This is one of LaBeouf’s most authentic roles, creating a realistic yet flawed character with a heart and a troubled past.” Reel Talk With Chuck and Pam

Yes, God, Yes

A devoutly religious teen grapples with her own sexual awakening, and attends a Catholic school retreat in the hopes of suppressing her newfound urges.

This is a story of teenage innocence and religious guilt, and it’s told in a smart, warmhearted manner, without turning sarcastic or cruel.” Detroit News

The Unicorn Store

After failing out of art school and taking a humdrum office job, a whimsical painter gets a chance to fulfill her lifelong dream of adopting a unicorn.

Larson approaches Unicorn Store with such earnest emotion – both in her performance and the film’s direction – that the film quickly becomes something much more.” Independent (UK)

Sometimes Always Never

Alan is a stylish tailor with moves as sharp as his suits. He has spent years searching tirelessly for his missing son Michael who stormed out over a game of Scrabble. With a body to identify and his family torn apart, Alan must repair the relationship with his youngest son Peter and solve the mystery of an online player who he thinks could be Michael, so he can finally move on and reunite his family.

It’s a delightful, charming slice of British quirk, helped over the line by Bill Nighy in full national treasure mode.” VultureHound
