The Mend

Friday, August 21 - Tuesday, September 8, 2015

Loose cannon Mat (Josh Lucas) shows up unannounced at his brother’s Harlem apartment and quickly upends his sibling’s stable existence. Bolstered by a cacophonous modern classical score, a supporting turn by Frances Ha’s Mickey Sumner and an anarchic go-for-broke energy, this wildly ambitious, hilariously bilious comedy of brotherly hate marks debut director Magary as a major new talent. Official selection: SXSW, BAMcinemaFest
