Drinking Buddies


Special introduction by Boston Online Film Critics Association member Andrew Crump!

(2013) dir Joe Swanberg w/Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson, Anna Kendrick, Ron Livingston [90 min]
Master of the no-budget indie, Joe Swanberg took a step outside his comfort zone in 2013 by working with “real” professional actors, and the results are pretty great! Wilde and Johnson play co-workers at a craft brewery who have an obvious attraction to each other – but they are both in committed relationships. Predictably, things get messy, but Swanberg maintains a naturally comedic tone – ably aided by the principal cast – that means the film never swings into needlessly over-dramatic territory.
