Despite having only seen a handful of things from the film so far – all of which have been brilliant – I’m convinced that Jeff, Who Lives At Home, the Duplass brothers’ latest film, will be one of the best of the year, and certainly one of the finest indie movies of the year.
Co-written and -directed by Jay and Mark Duplass, the cast is headed up by Jason Segel, Ed Helms, Judy Greer, and Susan Sarandon, and what we have seen so far has been perfectly pointing in the right direction. All very promising stuff.
“On his way to the store to buy wood glue, Jeff looks for signs from the universe to determine his path. However, a series of comedic and unexpected events leads him to cross paths with his family in the strangest of locations and circumstances. Jeff just may find the meaning of his life… and if he’s lucky, pick up the wood glue as well.”
Jeff, Who Lives At Home saw its release in the US this past weekend, but only in a limited style, and I hear that the Duplass brothers will be looking to expand the number of theatres it’s being shown in this weekend – so if you’re reading this over in the States, be sure to keep an eye out to see if it’s playing in your local cinemas.
Here in the UK, we’ve got a little while longer to wait, with its release coming on 11th May, but I (all but) guarantee it’s going to be worth the wait. For now, your new clip to enjoy.
