No film in recent memory has embodied the idea of ‘independent spirit’ quite like My Best Day, which premiered as part of Sundance’s avant-gardish Next section. It’s a sharp and quirky little comedy that features some incredibly engaging performances and a tightly manufactured script that screams with rural authenticity. The film is set on the Fourth of July in a town where everyone’s a character:  Karen (Rachel Style) is working the holiday at the local refrigerator repair shop when she gets a call from a man (Hunt Block) who could be her long lost father. Her best friend Meagan (Ashlie Atkinson) agrees to come along and pretend to fix the fridge so Karen can meet her father and perhaps her sister. Meagan has a hankering for a used motorcycle, which she rides down to the local hangout to impress Heather (SNL’s Kate McKinnon), whom she’s sweet on, ticking off her main squeeze, Amy (Molly Lloyd), a nurse at the local hospital. My Best Day is a colorful assortment of entertaining characters that all blend together thanks to writer/director Erin Greenwell’s attention to detail and her adept understanding of rural life.

Screening with the short film "Cock 'N Bull."

This SHOUT Exclusive Short comes to us from Nathan Adloff, star of the 2010 Best Narrative Feature winner “Blackmail Boys” and writer/director of the film “Nate & Margaret”. Wes (co-writer Danny Rhodes) invites his best friend, Chris (Nathan Adloff), over for a night-in after being dumped by Henry. They attempt to blow off some steam by prank calling strangers, but soon realize that may have been the worst idea ever.
