Greener Grass


THU, NOV 28 – TUE, DEC 3

The Late Show!

2019 • dir Jocelyn DeBoer, Dawn Luebbe w/Jocelyn DeBoer, Dawn Luebbe, Beck Bennett, Neil Casey • 93 min • DCP

From writers/directors/stars Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe, GREENER GRASS is set in a bonkers, candy-colored suburbia in the vein of David Lynch and John Waters – but totally, idiosyncratically its own thing. Jill and Lisa, two housewives in a hyper-competitive ‘perfect’ community, are best friends but, after Jill spontaneously gifts Lisa her newborn baby, jealousy and paranoia begin to set in.

“Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe confirm their gift for outrageous absurdity in this impressive debut dark comedy full of unsettling behavior… GREENER GRASS fully commits to a demented version of suburbia as DeBoer and Luebbe scrutinize the willingness to endure extreme discomfort in exchange for conformity.”
– Sundance Film Festival

Staff Pick: Brandon

“The wickedly weird (and often wonderful) suburban satire crams more inventive ideas and clear-eyed perspective into 95 minutes than most billion-dollar franchises can do over the course of a dozen movies.”
– Kate Erbland, Indiewire

“Adult Swim fans will love this bongwater-soaked absurdist nightmare.”
– Nick Johnston, Vanyaland

“It’s grounded. It’s smart. It’s downright disgusting.”
– Alan Ng, Film Threat
