“Words such as offbeat, charming or, Lord help us, quirky are wildly overused and yet this is exactly the kind of film to which they best apply.” - LA Times
“It might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this mixture of magical realism and bittersweet absurdity benefits from a consistency of vision and a genuinely unusual storytelling approach.” - EricDSnider.com
“Nick Offerman is a scene-stealing genius.” - Cinema Scope
Bob Byington’s smart, subversive comedy skips through 35 years in the life of Max Youngman (Keith Poulson), his best (and only) friend Sal (Nick Offerman, PARKS AND RECREATION), and the woman they both adore (Jess Weixler, TEETH). As they stumble in and out of hilariously misguided relationships — strung together with animated vignettes by Bob Sabiston (A SCANNER DARKLY) and an original score by Vampire Weekend’s Chris Baio — Max never ages, holding on to a mysterious briefcase that may or may not contain the secret to life.
