One of the strangest films to come out of Sundance this year was Jim Hosking‘s An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn, the followup to his equally odd The Greasy Strangler. Aubrey Plaza stars as a woman who leaves her husband, played by Emile Hirsch, after he fires her from her waitressing job and discovers a former lover she thought dead is alive and performing a show. The film also stars Jemaine Clement, and Craig Robinson, along with some familiar Greasy Strangler faces. You can read our full review here.
An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn opens in theaters and on VOD platforms October 19th.
After getting fired by her scheming husband Shane Danger (Emile Hirsch) from his cappuccino shop, dissatisfied Lulu Danger (Aubrey Plaza) is stunned when a TV commercial for “An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn For One Magical Night Only” reveals a mysterious man from her past (Craig Robinson). When Shane and his bumbling cohorts steal the cashbox from Lulu’s adopted vegan brother Adjay (Sam Dissanayake), specialist Colin (Jemaine Clement) enters the fray to retrieve the stolen funds. But Lulu seizes the opportunity to run off in search of her mystery man—and events only become stranger from there. This is a story of love, theft, athletic swimming, and a magical magical event.
