Dir. Sam Hoffman (US, 2017, 93 min.)
Sam Hoffman - the creative force behind the book series, web series, and Off-Broadway hit Old Jews Telling Jokes - makes his feature debut with Humor Me. Jemaine Clement stars as Nate, a once-acclaimed New York playwright struggling to finish his new play when his wife (Maria Dizzia) leaves him and takes their son. Desolate, broke, and unable to pay the rent, Nate begrudgingly moves in with his widowed father, Bob (Elliott Gould), at a New Jersey retirement golf community. Father and son face many challenges while living together, but through ups and downs, they learn to appreciate their differences. (In NYC theaters Jan. 12)
"Gould sketches his character deftly and demonstrates his professional savvy. Clement makes a winsome sad sack hero." - Hollywood Reporter
