A slippery psychological thriller that exposes true human nature and reveals just how far we’re willing to go to satisfy our needs. It served as directorial debut from Nick Tomnay and stars David Hyde Pierce, Clayne Crawford and Nathaniel Parker. The film premiered at Sundance Film Festival last year, and has been making its way through the festival circuit since last fall’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Warwick Wilson (David Hyde Pierce) is the consummate host. He carefully prepares for a dinner party, the table impeccably set and the duck perfectly timed for 8:30 p.m. John Taylor (Clayne Crawford) is a career criminal. He’s just robbed a bank and needs to get off the streets. He finds himself on Warwick’s doorstep posing as a friend of a friend, new to Los Angeles, who's been mugged and lost his luggage. As the wine flows and the evening progresses, we become deeply intertwined in the lives of these two men and discover just how deceiving appearances can be.
