An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn - Picturehouse Spotlight

An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn

Filmmaker Jim Hosking makes his triumphant return to the Festival, bringing his innate talent for outrageous absurdity to the romantic comedy genre.

Director: Jim Hosking.
Starring: Aubrey Plaza, Emile Hirsch, Craig Robinson.

After being fired by her scheming husband Shane Danger (Emile Hirsch) from his cappuccino shop, dissatisfied Lulu Danger (Aubrey Plaza) is stunned when a TV commercial for “An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn For One Magical Night Only” reveals a mysterious man from her past (Craig Robinson). When Shane and his bumbling cohorts steal the cashbox from Lulu’s adopted vegan brother Adjay, specialist Colin (Jemaine Clement) enters the fray to retrieve the stolen funds. But Lulu seizes the opportunity to run off in search of her mystery man – and events only become stranger from there.

Filmmaker Jim Hosking (The Greasy Strangler) makes his triumphant return to the Festival, bringing his innate talent for outrageous absurdity to the romantic comedy genre while pushing the boundaries of storytelling into the wild unknown of outsider art. Throwing a fine cast of comedic favourites into places of great daring, and with a spirited sense of timing and unexpected emotion, Hosking and the contents of his fevered brain produce a kind of cinema like no other.
