Dreams rarely leave room for reality—which is probably why adults covered up their snickering when, as a precocious child of three, you told them you wanted to be Indiana Jones when you grew up.
(OH YEAH, MOM?! WELL LOOK AT ME NOW! I’VE EVEN GOT THE HAT AND EVERYTHING.)
In other words, the world doesn’t take kindly to artistic types. It’s the harsh realization behind new indie comedy Apartment Troubles, written and directed by real-life friends Jennifer Prediger (Red Flag) and Jess Weixler (Teeth). Co-starring such notable folks as Megan Mullally, Jeffrey Tambor and Will Forte, Apartment Troubles is a tale about the literal price of fame…and whether it’s enough to pay the bills.
And oh hey, we’ve got an exclusive clip from the film below, ready to fill your rent-controlled headspace. Check it out.
APARTMENT TROUBLES is a story about how Olivia and Nicole are codependent roommates who are definitely going to make it; they’re just not sure how. When they get evicted from their shoebox apartment in Manhattan—conceptual art just doesn’t cover the rent—they boldly take off to L.A. for the promise of sunshine. As one door slams shut, another opens—a tarot card reading later, the duo decide to take their performance art sensibilities to the mainstream by auditioning for a reality TV talent show.
This madcap buddy film marks the screenwriting and directorial debuts of costars and real-life friends Jennifer Prediger and Jess Weixler. Strong comedic performances by Megan Mullally (Will & Grace), Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development; Transparent) and Will Forte (Last Man On Earth; Saturday Night Live) reveal the vulnerability behind even their most bizarre behavior.
APARTMENT TROUBLES has a running time of 95 minutes and will not be rated by the MPAA. The film premiered at the 2014 Los Angeles Film Festival and is produced by StarStream Entertainment. Gravitas Ventures will release APARTMENT TROUBLES in select markets and on VOD and across all other digital platforms on March 27, 2015.
