HUMPDAY
2009, Magnolia Pictures, 94 min, USA, Dir: Lynn Shelton

It's been a decade since Ben (Mark Duplass) and Andrew (Joshua Leonard) were the bad boys of their college campus. Ben has settled down and found a job, wife and home, while Andrew took the alternate route as a vagabond artist. When Andrew shows up unannounced on Ben's doorstep, they easily fall back into their old dynamic of macho one-upmanship. Late into the night at a wild party, the two find themselves locked in a mutual dare: to enter an amateur porn contest together. Writer-director Lynn Shelton expertly mines the biggest ironies of the male ego to hilarious effect in this buddy movie gone wild.


OUTSIDE IN
2017, The Orchard, 109 min, USA, Dir: Lynn Shelton

Shot on location in Washington state, this quietly affecting drama follows Carol (Edie Falco), a high school teacher, and Chris (Jay Duplass, who also cowrote the film), her ex-student, as they explore a relationship after his release from a 20-year prison sentence. While Chris navigates his re-entry into the world, Carol works to rebuild her family and reconnect with her teenage daughter (Kaitlyn Dever). Featuring an original score from singer-songwriter Andrew Bird. “Exploring big questions through small, intimate moments, OUTSIDE IN is a love story that prioritizes patience and pragmatism over passion.” - Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
