EAST COAST PREMIERE Fresh from its Sundance premiere, this deliciously twisted comedy is set in a demented, timeless suburbia where every adult wears braces on their straight teeth, couples coordinate meticulously pressed outfits, and coveted family members are swapped in more ways than one in a competition for acceptance. Based on their 2016 SXSW award-winning short film by the same name, Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe wrote, directed and star. Beck Bennett (“Saturday Night Live”), Neil Casey (Ghostbusters, “Inside Amy Schumer”), Mary Holland (Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, “Veep”) and D’Arcy Carden (“The Good Place”) co-star. If we were looking for just one movie that encapsulated the What The Fest!? spirit, then GREENER GRASS might just be it—a mirror of the demented, crazy-colored foundation of the festival’s concept. It’s got a dash of everything that we love and look for in movies – uncanny storytelling, a filmmaker vision that pops off the screen, some proper kick to its humor and the ability to generate a casual “What The F…” every once in a while. A movie that’s made for us–and for you, our dear friends–GREENER GRASS is a cult film in the making and an absolute delight! – Maria Reinup
