Joshy

Sundance-nominated comedy from Jeff Baena, co-writer of I Heart Huckabees and director of Life After Beth. After his engagement ends badly, Josh (Silicon Valley's Thomas Middleditch) decides to take advantage of his bachelor-party plans in Ojai, California, with the few friends still willing to join him. Co-stars Aubrey Plaza, Adam Pally, Alison Brie and Nick Kroll.

"Focused on drugs and their own hangups, his self-absorbed friends refuse to confront the elephant in the room and ask Josh how he’s feeling. As welcome and unwelcome guests stop by, Josh will attempt to find some closure over this weekend with the guys...

"A comedy about the emotionally inept nature of male bonding. Each character is his own fragile mess, covering up with hard partying and games. Baena stacks his deck with comedic talent throughout the film, giving each actor their own moment to shine with his clever script and relaxed direction. Backed by a score from Devendra Banhart, Joshy hits the right droll tone exploring how dumb the love of men can sometimes appear." (Sundance Film Festival)

One of the saddest comedies ever made about boys behaving badly at a bachelor party, "Joshy" offers a strange mix of elements that never quite add up.
