One of the only eight slots for the SXSW Dramatic Comp and part of the half dozen titles presented at the U.S in Progress, we’re expecting Gabi on the Roof helmer to have fine-tuned his filmmaking skills with his third feature film which has a packed house of indie thesps and on paper proposes the sort of fun one can have while playing Clue.
Gist: Newly engaged Brooklyn couple, Barri (Sophia Takal) and Noah (Lawrence Michael Levine), are disheartened by the death of their elderly downstairs neighbor Sylvia. Though Noah sees nothing unusual about the old woman’s death, Barri suspects foul play. Sporting a trench coat and fedora, she enlists her roommate Jean (Alia Shawkat) to join her on a reconnaissance mission to trail a possible suspect.
Release Date: Just announced as a SXSW Narrative Comp selection, this will likely tour several U.S. indie fests and if picked up early will receive a theatrical release sometime this year.
