Directed by Janicza Bravo | 2017

With Brett Gelman, Judy Greer, Michael Cera, Nia Long, Shiri Appleby, Fred Melamed

Destined to be the most audacious, absurdist feature debut of the year, Janicza Bravo’s brilliant, black-as-the-void comedy chronicles the singularly strange travails of neurotic (to put it mildly) failed actor Isaac (Gelman). When his blind girlfriend (Greer) walks out on him, Isaac’s life goes into freefall as he directs an unhinged staging of Chekhov’s The Seagull, attends the Passover Seder from hell (culminating in a weirdly catchy sing-along about matzo balls), and attempts to woo a new flame (Long). As unnerving as it is subversively funny, with startlingly stylized visuals and off-the-wall musical cues, Lemon has the earmarks of a cult classic in the making.

A Magnolia Pictures release.
