Misery Loves Comedy - It featured a lot of comedy greats including Christopher Guest, Richard Lewis, Marc Maron, Amy Schumer, Judd Apatow (and I could go on...). The film got to the root of what drives someone to become a comedian since it is such a narcissistic yet soul crushing career. If you're a comedy fan then I recommend it. It's available VOD and limited theater release.
Bad Hurt - Starring Theo Rossi, of my beloved Sons of Anarchy cast members (aka Juice). Shot entirely in Staten Island and I love supporting NYC films because I hate when a show/movie is set in NYC but shoot somewhere else. I digress... it's a beautiful but HEART WRENCHING story about a family dealing with PTSD and a special needs child. I cried like a bitch. It premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival but hopefully will be released soon.
Adult Beginners - I adore Nick Kroll so I'll watch anything he's in. The rest of the cast is also great - Rose Byrne, Bobby Cannavale, Joel McHale. It's about what most indie comedies are about, a lost soul who fights with their family. You really can't make Rose look frumpy. It's a sweet film but the ending was a little odd for me. I liked the Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader's Skeleton Twins better. It's released the same day VOD and in theaters, which I think is smart for an indie film. If you want to relax and enjoy a movie for less than $7 then I'd recommend it.
