And then there were none.
Days left in the festival, that is. On the final day, the final film was They Came Together, from the minds of David Wain and Michael Showalter. Think of every rom-com cliche and skew it just a little bit to the right, left, turn it around or upside-down, and you’ve got this film. There was a chance it would go too far, into the eye-roll realm, but no, it was right on target throughout. A good chuckler to end the festival.
Looking back over the last few weeks, I think the highlight for me was Frank, although I couldn’t say I didn’t like any of the films I saw during this year’s festival. I guess I’m just really good at choosing!
