Lousy (David Krumholtz, recently seen in Oppenheimer) is lousy: lousy boyfriend, lousy teacher, lousy neighbor. Now he learns he has no more than six months to live. Nothing goes as expected in the latest comedy from Bob Byington. Can one fail in dying, too?
Bob Byington is an American director and screenwriter who lives in Austin, Texas. He debuted in 1996 with Shameless. His later films, Somebody Up There Likes Me and Harmony and Me are often considered part of the mumblecore genre, though Byington seems to disagree. Since his Somebody Up There Likes Me won an award at the Locarno Festival in 2012, he’s been showing his films there ever since. Just as in Wrocław, where his 7 Chinese Brothers (6th AFF), Infinity Baby (7th AFF) or Frances Ferguson (9th AFF) all made a splash.
