Join the Boston Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Mar 23rd at 8:30pm for Otis at the Brattle Theatre . Look for Sean wearing a nametag in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
The festival runs from March 20th through the 23rd. It’s a great festival, so head on over to their site and see if there are any other films you are interested in!
“Meet Otis. Otis is about as well-intentioned as a serial-killer can be. He just wants a date to the prom. His victims survive so long as they are willing to play along. While Otis may think he is still in high school, he is actually a pizza delivery driver and perpetual fuck-up.”
“Meet the Lawsons Â– an idyllic suburbanite family. They are average in almost every way. But when teenage daughter Riley is abducted by Otis, the remaining broodÂ’s desire to take matters into their own hands is exacerbated by the FBIÂ’s appointment of an insufferable douchebag as the agent in charge of the investigation, and facilitated by Riley’s clever escape from OtisÂ’ clutches.”
“As the situation becomes more farcical, and the Lawson’s quest for vengeance becomes more indiscriminate, the stage becomes set for a tragedy of Mystic River-like proportionsÂ… only way funnier. Featuring an impressive cast and clever script, Otis is a wickedly subversive dark comedy that marks the directoral debut of veteran producer Tony Krantz (TVÂ’s 24, Mulholland Drive).”
