Mumblecore hits the road.
WHY WE PICKED IT: The Duplass brothers’ debut feature – made for a mere $15,000 – imbues a Mumblecore road trip with awkward yet ultimately relatable humor.
Josh and Emily are in a relationship on the brink. Rather than address the elephant in the room, they continually find distractions, including a road-trip to Atlanta to buy a reclining chair that Josh wants to give to his father on his birthday. Written, produced and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass, this film won the Audience Award at SXSW in 2005.
DIRECTOR: Jay Duplass
