MR. RIGHT is an action-comedy romance film directed by Paco Cabezas (Rage) from a screenplay by Max Landis (Chronicle, American Ultra, Victor Frankenstein). Premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, the film stars Sam Rockwell, Anna Kendrick, Tim Roth, James Ransone, Anson Mount, Michael Eklund, and RZA.
Hyperactive at the best of times, Martha (Kendrick) has gone full-on manic since her latest breakup. She babbles, parties like a monster, cooks everything in sight — and is looking to do something terrible when she meets Francis (Rockwell). To anyone else, Francis’s approach would come across as creepy, but Martha can’t help but be intrigued. They seem a perfect match: she’s bananas, he’s bananas... except he’s a deadly sort of bananas. He’s a professional assassin. Francis is a hitman with a cause: he unexpectedly kills the people ordering the hits. Just as Martha begins to realize her new beau wasn’t joking when he said he had to step out for a moment to shoot someone, things start heating up for Francis. His services are solicited by a dubious client who’s being sought by an equally dubious FBI agent (Roth). As the bodies pile up, Martha needs to decide whether to flee or join in the mayhem.
