After the pharmacy in her small town is robbed, a girl who still lives at home with her parents takes matters into her own hands to solve the crime, while at the same time trying to get over her ex-boyfriend and become more of an adult.
One of the funniest films of FLIFF38. Directed by Nicholaus Goosen and starring Esther Povitsky, the two have teamed up before with comedy (HOT FOR MY NAME), and just how in sync they are, shows.
Director: Goossen’s first feature film was Grandma’s Boy for Happy Madison Productions and 20th Century Fox. He collaborated with Adam Sandler (executive producer of Grandma’s Boy) on the album Shhh…Don’t Tell as a writer and co-producer in addition to performing on the track “Gay Robot”.
In 2009, Goossen directed the horror film, The Shortcut in Saskatchewan, Canada. The film tells the story of two brothers who learn first-hand about an urban legend surrounding a shortcut near their school. In 2010, Goossen was the director of a Times Square interactive billboard installation for retailer Forever 21 which was developed by space150; the installation received media coverage for being “a clever, fresh project,” but later, coverage focused on its similarities to Chris O’Shea’s 2009 project in Liverpool. In 2014 Goossen directed the video to the song “Human Sadness” by the American rock band Julian Casablancas + The Voidz. In 2015 he directed the comedy specials Trevor Moore: High in Church and Nick Swardson: Taste It.
