From the recollection of a shared quotidian to otherworldly situations that tackle the blackest parts of the human psyche, these films bring viewers together on multiple levels.
Plotlines provide fresh ideas for the notion of comedy, tapping into the shared hilarity of visual and physical forms. Each film urges audiences to laugh as part of a communal experience. These films are both accessible and deeply connective. Heart-warming, electrifying and surprising screenings.
Maggie, a wife and mother, must find the courage to own up to her behaviour when she wakes to find every adult has received a YELP-like star rating floating above their head. While most everyone has a shining 4 and 5 star rating, Maggie’s got just 2.5.
