Life After Beth

USA | 2014 | 91 Minutes | Jeff Baena

August 22 - 28, 2014

Final week! Ends Thurs Aug 28 | From the writer of I Heart Huckabees comes a romantic comedy for the undead. Zach (Dane DeHaan) is devastated by the unexpected death of his girlfriend, Beth (Aubrey Plaza). Then Beth miraculously comes back to life–though she may not be quite the same girl she used to be.

After Beth rises from the dead, Zach takes full advantage of the opportunity to share and experience all the things he regretted not doing with her before. However, the newly returned Beth isn’t quite how he remembered her and, before long, Zach’s whole world takes a turn for the worse.

Jeff Baena's indie zom-rom-com twists genre conventions in a knot for a sweetly dark comedy with a cast that also includes Anna Kendrick, John C. Reilly, Molly Shannon, Cheryl Hines, and Paul Reiser.

"Charming, thoughtful and laugh-out-loud funny. Everyone onscreen seems to be having a blast, and the feeling becomes as infectious as a zombie virus." - Geoff Berkshire, Variety

"Sometimes tender, sometimes frantic, and always funny, the film's surprising coherence is exemplified in a climactic scene that pairs credible heartbreak with pure slapstick." - John DeFore, Hollywood Reporter
