7 Chinese Brothers

USA | 2015 | 76 minutes | Bob Byington

In this very funny character study, Jason Schwartzman is Larry, a charming slacker aimlessly stumbling through low-end jobs, dates, and bars with his trusty, and even lazier scene-stealing companion, Arrow the french bulldog (Schwartzman’s own dog.) Director Bob Byington and actor Jason Schwartzman scheduled to attend.

The June 7 screening is on STANDBY. There are no advance tickets available.

Bob Byington teams up with Jason Schwartzman (Rushmore, Listen Up Philip) for this observational, quirky comedy. Schwartzman stars as Larry who, along with his trusty sidekick French bulldog Arrow (Schwartzman's real-life pet), goes through life as a misanthropic outcast who fails to retain employment or stable relationships - especially with his grandma, played with sharp timing and wit by Academy Award®-winner Olympia Dukakis (Moonstruck). After getting fired from his last job, Larry talks himself into working as an auto-mechanic and finds himself falling for his new boss. Part absurdist comedy and part character portrait, 7 Chinese Brothers is a unique tale about people stuck within the confines of normalcy while they represent anything but. Co-starring Tunde Adebimpe from the band TV on the Radio and Alex Karpovsky from “Girls.”
