Noah Baumbach’s latest has his muse, Greta Gerwig, taking center stage again as Brooke, a 30 year old whirlwind of a woman, filled with an excess of Joie de Vivre and just as much chaos. But she becomes a beacon of possibility and a muse for her writing for her soon to be step-sister Tracey (Lola Kirke) a freshman at a NYC college looking for direction. The two take on the town trying to get Brooke’s naive restaurant concept funded but Tracey may be more interested in Brooke’s fictional counterpart she’s drawing up than Brooke herself.

Beau and Chris take on this indie comedy so listen to what they have to say because, out of everybody in The Unusual Suspects, they’re probably the only ones who’ve actually seen all of Baumbach’s films so far. Pfft. Hipsters.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
