George (Mark Boyd) sure has seen better days - but of late, he has lost
his job, and his wife has run off with the very man, Mark (Kris Reilly) he
lost his job to - and suddenly he finds hanging himself a viable option -
even if that guy (Joe Piazza) in the YouTube tutorial about how to make a
noose seems less than reliable. And then, his head already in the noose,
he receives a call from Josh (Jason Bowen), his former colleague and a
rather annoying guy, who tells him that above Mark is going to commit
suicide by jumping from their office building - and George is invited to
watch. As a matter of fact, it seems like a lot of people have come to
watch, all former colleagues of George and his ex-boss (Harley Wallen),
but nobody makes the slightest attempt to save Mark - and gradually,
George finds life worth living again after all ...
subject matter of Georgy is a dark one, but somehow writer/director
Bryce Crook managed to make a rather light-footed comedy out of it that
manages to stay away from the moronic as well as the gross-out ends of the
genre but brings its story across via poignant dialogue, a relateable
loser character in the center of things, a fun set of supporting
characters, and of course a very solid ensemble cast.
A film that's
almost sure to make everyone chuckle quite a few times.
