John Magary's The Mend

"Can we go get ice cream?!" The first trailer has premiered for an indie comedy called The Mend that is being presented in the US by filmmaker David Gordon Green. The film is about two brothers who clash in a "tension filled house" when one returns home to find a bunch of squatters at his apartment. Josh Lucas stars along with Stephen Plunkett, Lucy Owen, Cory Nichols, Mickey Sumner and Louisa Krause. This actually looks better than anyone is probably expecting, and that's why it's worth taking a look at the trailer. There's an off-beat charm and yet still a brutal honesty to this, and I think that's what makes it oddly appealing. I'm not entirely sure. Definitely a festival film, but I'm intrigued enough to catch it. Fire this up.

Here's the official UK trailer for John Magary's The Mend, direct from YouTube (via The Film Stage):

The Mend

Self-destructive drifter Mat (Josh Lucas) crashes a party in Harlem unaware that his estranged brother Alan is the host. To complicate matters Alan is only days away from a romantic getaway in which he plans to propose to his girlfriend Farrah. Mat, a sleazy layabout, is soon house-sitting for the couple alongside a pair of choice squatters - his girlfriend Andrea and her son from a previous dalliance. But when Alan returns home sooner than expected after his holiday plans go awry he learns the power has been shut off and he's inherited three loathsome house guests and an environment of squalor. Welcome to the sharehouse from hell. The Mend is written & directed by John Magary, of a few shorts previously. This first premiered at the SXSW Film Festival and arrives in US theaters starting on August 21st. Interested?
