Directed by Bob Byington
United States, 75 minutes
FRI OCT 15 @ 8:45pm | Salem Cinema
SUN OCT 17 @ 5:15pm | Salem Cinema

Sly, absurdist and bristling with wry wit, Bob Byington's hilariously deadpan comedy for the cell phone generation takes place in Austin, Texas, where a voluble young lyricist named Harmony refuses to let go of the heartbreak caused when Jessica, his girlfriend, breaks up with him. In a series of loosely improvised and very funny episodes, Harmony riffs on life and love with his friends, colleagues and family while fighting to win back his girl. Starring musician Justin Rice (MUTUAL APPRECIATION, lead singer of Bishop Allen) as the motor-mouthed Harmony and indie vet Kevin Corrigan as his sidekick, Carlos, Byington's film presents a heartfelt portrait of a bright guy and his unsympathetic buddies dealing with heartache.
