Indie Film Ira and Abby Found by Magnolia Pictures

Another one of my favorite independent finds from the US Comedy Arts Fest this year was Ira & Abby, a romantic comedy that really took me by surprise. Although it was eventually overshadowed by how amazing Death at a Funeral was, I still really enjoyed Ira & Abby and really hope that the public finds as much joy in it as I did. The film took home the Best Feature award at the US Comedy Arts Fest and was just now sold to Magnolia Pictures for distribution.

The film was interestingly both written by and stars the utterly gorgeous and Jennifer Westfeldt, an actress I'd never heard of before seeing this. The chemistry between her rather free-spirited character and the guy she falls in love with and marries (played by the talented Chris Messina) is brilliant, and at the same time the most awkward thing you'll see. No matter how much prep you'll be given, you will still be surprised by the chemistry of the romance and the story in Ira & Abby.

No official plans for a release date yet, but I hope it's soon, as I hate waiting too long for a great indie film like this. And thanks for reading, as I'm always excited to give some extra emphasis to the better independent films out there that deserve an audience.
