dir. Dev Patel | fiction, 2017, Singapore, USA | 16 min.
A crazy black comedy about what may happen when a husband starts to grumble about his wife’s teleshopping passion. Maybe it was better to remain silent than to complain about Penny’s (Sophie Kargman) purchase of a new mixer? Dev Patel, an actor known for "Slumdog Millionaire", "Lion" or "Chappie", makes his debut as a director. Leigh Whannell, who played in "Saw" and "Insidious", is a co-author of the script. Arnie Hammer ("The Man from U.N.C.L.E.", "Call Me by Your Name") appears in an unexpected role. The husband is played by Thomas Sadoski, who featured in "Newsroom" and "John Wick 2''. This black comedy where wives from Stepford are pushed into a black void gets to Cracow straight from Sundance. Brace yourselves for this killer story!
