Director Jim Hosking & Actor Sky Elobar in attendance
An Evening With Beverly Luff LinnUnited States, 2018 : Canadian Premiere
After getting fired by her scheming husband Shane Danger (Emile Hirsch) from his cappuccino shop, dissatisfied Lulu Danger (Aubrey Plaza) is stunned when a TV commercial for “An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn For One Magical Night Only” reveals a mysterious man from her past (Craig Robinson). When Shane and his bumbling cohorts steal the cashbox from Lulu’s adopted vegan brother Adjay, specialist Colin (Jemaine Clement) enters the fray to retrieve the stolen funds. Lulu seizes this opportunity to run off in search of her mystery man—and events only become stranger from there. The new film from madman Jim Hosking (THE GREASY STRANGLER) is sure to make you laugh and cringe in equal measures.

"...Hosking’s synthetic style where all the clothes are bad, all the characters are dingbats, and every scene is cluttered with snort-worthy absurdism."- Variety
