“Madcap murder mystery meets razor-sharp relationship comedy in this witty update on the detective movie — think Nancy Drew and her boyfriend run amok in present-day Brooklyn. Husband and wife filmmaking team Sophia Takal and director Lawrence Michael Levine (Gabi on the Roof in July) star as recently engaged but perpetually bickering couple Barri and Noah. When their elderly downstairs neighbor suddenly kicks the bucket, the flighty Barri immediately suspects foul play. Cue a harebrained investigation as Barri — outfitted in a Columbo­-style trench coat—enlists her secretly-in-love-with-her lesbian roommate (Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat) to help her get to the bottom of the matter. Parenthood’s Jason Ritter co-stars in this screwball whodunit, which crackles with zingy one-liners, a brassy retro score, and real romantic tension.” (Denver Film Festival) Sophia Takal & Lawrence Michael Levine in person!
Dir. Lawrence Michael Levine, 2014, DCP, 96 min.
