"Extraordinarily touching and quietly hilarious"
-Richard Brody, The New Yorker
"The clear interior of Curb Your Enthusiasm’s tonal mixture of upbeat cheer with unbridled narcissism, embarrassment, and painful reveals."
-Miriam Bale, Filmmaker Magazine
The usually quarreling Greenstein brothers Seth (Karpovsky) and Stanley (writer/director Stephen Gurewitz reluctantly agree to join their father, Marvin, for a weekend trip in rural Minnesota. Estranged from each other, the threesome of inept outdoorsmen rediscover repressed grudges as the weekend comically devolves into a series of daytime drinking episodes and botched outdoor pursuits . A serious comedy of deceit and stilted emotions, the sharp relationships in Marvin, Seth and Stanley are buffered by the warmth of an autumnal Midwestern landscape authentically captured through 16mm color cinematography.
