You think you need a breather before starting your PhD, so you and your girlfriend agree to meet in far-away Oregon and experience "real life." You have a fight with your mom, dump your credit cards, sell your car, get a backpack, and head out.

This fish-out-of-water comedy, based on a story by David Sedaris and adapted for the screen by Kyle Patrick Alvarez, was nominated for the Sundance Grand Jury Prize in 2013. Now featured at the 2013 Seattle International Film Festival, we get to see just how naive a cocky, well-educated young man from the East Coast can be when he actually experiences "real life."

We watch:
  • Jonathon Groff ("The Conspirator") as our adventurous hero, arrives in Oregon first, so he gets a job picking apples until his girlfriend arrives. Problem is, when she gets there, she has a new young man in tow, so in her book, our shocked hero is history!
  • Dean Stockwell ("Battlestar Galactica") owns the apple orchard. Most of his pickers are immigrants, so he is pretty skeptical about how well this ivy-leaguer will work out.
  • Dale Dickey ("Iron Man 3") is the crusty dame who shows him the ropes in the packing plant.
  • Corey Stoll ("The Bourne Legacy") works in the packing plant. He arranges a promotion for our hero, but there are strings....
  • Denis O'Hare ("The Good Wife") is the wily fellow passing out pamphlets in town. He invites our hero to become a C.O.G.
  • Troian Bellisario ("Pretty Little Liars") is our hero's landlady, but she and her husband ask him to move, even though they too, are C.O.Gs.
This film is not yet rated, but there is little or no profanity, no sweaty bodies, no blowie uppie stuff and one mild pummeling. The most telling part of the story is when our hero is told that he too, can become a C.O.G. (Child of God). His response will surprise you.

Sorry there isn't a preview yet...
