Wristcutters, A Love Story: upbeat, quirky, classic

I want to direct your attention to Wristcutters, a wry, sharp film starring Patrick Fugit, the kid from Almost Famous. It was produced (with others) by my friend Tatiana Kelly. After it made the rounds of the film festivals last year, I feared the little gem would be lost before they could pick up some kind of national distribution. But now it looks like they’ve done it!

There’s a trailer on the Wristcutters web site but because the web site is all Flash-based, it takes some clicking to get to it. Click on “Enter site,” then on the “Menu” in the lower right corner, then on “Videos.” There’s also video in the sidebar of the very positive New York Times review.
