  • MY EFFORTLESS BRILLIANCE filmmaker Lynn Shelton works with a cast of indie favorites--including BAGHEAD's Mark Duplass and THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT's Joshua Leonard--for this comedy. Old friends Andrew and Ben add a new wrinkle to their relationship when they go to a commune where an amateur porn festival is on the agenda. But rather than sitting and watching, these heterosexual men get up and do...each other. How will this change their friendship, and will Ben be able to return to his marriage with Anna (Alycia Delmore)?

  • Critic Reviews
    "[With a] sly, wised-up feminist outlook. Writer-director Lynn Shelton sweetly, mischievously tracks Ben and Andrew..." -- Grade: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    "With X-ray vision, this serious indie comedy, written and directed by Lynn Shelton, sees through its male characters' macho pretensions to contemplate the underlying forces hard-wired into men's psyches..."
    New York Times

    "[I]n scene after scene, HUMPDAY carefully raises the stakes until it hits a finale loaded with humor, tenderness, and delicious ambiguity. It's like OLD JOY by way of Judd Apatow." -- Grade: A-
    A.V. Club

    3 stars out of 5 -- "The actors, principally Mark Duplass, Joshua Leonard and Alycia Delmore, are terrific and natural, playing their scenes in something resembling the semi-improvised style of Judd Apatow's recent work."
    Box Office

    "[I]t's funny....That director Lynn Shelton can steer her film down all these thematic roads and yet still include some giddy laughs is a mumblecore marvel indeed."

    3.5 stars out of 5 -- "HUMPDAY is funny, yes, but also observant and thought-provoking..."
    Chicago Sun-Times

    "[S]harply observed....[The film] exists in a realm somewhere between mumblecore wispiness and shock-jocular Apatowian romp."
    Los Angeles Times

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[B]oth ridiculous and surprisingly real, mining a very rich seam of comedy while also making some very sharp points about male friendships..."

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[A] sweetly handled buddy flick, asking compelling questions about sexuality and friendship."
