After graduating from college, Marnie (Kate Dollenmayer) is living in Boston. Looking for temporary work while trying to figure out what it is she wants to do, Marnie grapples with her feelings toward her good friend Alex (Christian Rudder), who doesn’t seem to feel the same way about her. As she attempts to mature while surviving her dreary desk job, Marnie meets Mitchell (Andrew Bujalski), a shy, neurotic coworker who helps her better understand herself.
Love is playing the trumpet in the bath. Intern Hannah isn’t sure she’s found Mr Right, but she’s sure ready to go looking. A bittersweet, bed-hopping indie comedy.
Two college buddies reunite after a decade apart. Ben (Mark Duplass) is married and planning to start a family; Andrew (Joshua Leonard), a free spirit, has spent the last 10 years traveling the globe. Reigniting the rivalries of their college years, the friends agree to enter a movie in an upcoming amateur porn festival. Ben and Andrew’s constant need to one-up each other results in a daring proposition: The staunchly heterosexual friends must star together in a gay adult film.
