My Effortless Brilliance

My Effortless Brilliance

Musician/Actor/Filmmaker Sean Nelson (THE FREEBIE, TREATMENT) in person to introduce the 2008 Lynn Shelton comedy.

Successful, self-involved novelist Eric Lambert Jones has been dumped by his life long buddy Dylan. In an attempt to piece together the fractured friendship, Eric takes a side trip from his latest book tour to drop in on Dylan, newly settled in the picturesque backwoods of Washington state. An awkward weekend ensues as the two ex-buddies and Dylan's enigmatic new friend Jim, chop wood, match wits and ultimately embark on an impromptu, booze-soaked cougar hunt.

Writing in collaboration with the film's performers, Sean Nelson (lead singer of Harvey Danger), Basil Harris (We Go Way Back, Awesome) and Calvin Reeder (The Rambler, Little Farm, June & July), director Lynn Shelton takes a cinema verite approach to this, her second narrative feature. The deftly improvised performances in the film create a nuanced portrait of the unspoken intricacies of male friendship.

The film will be preceded with a short film directed by Ben Kasulke.
