Synopsis
LIVING IN MISSOURI, an award-winning tragic Black-Comedy of Manners, tells the tale of Ryan, Amy and Todd, whose humdrum Midwestern lives are coming apart at the seams. Childhood friendships, broken down marriages, personal betrayal, and long repressed desires come into conflict one tumultuous Missouri autumn. Ryan and Todd have been best friends since the 8th grade, and time has not been kind. Ryan is married to Amy, neglects his wife and daughter, plays Star Wars action figure games with his son and habitually steals office supplies. Todd works in a video store, lives in his parent’s basement and has vivid sexual hallucinations. Todd envies Ryan, Amy is left in the middle, trying to balance career and home, with no help from her selfish geek husband. Amy turns to Todd for support, but believes they are actually “having an affair”. Todd’s misunderstanding leads the trio to the brink of disaster. LIVING IN MISSOURI is a challenging, darkly comic film. Boasting a colorful cast of supporting characters, in particular familiar character actor Holmes Osborne (ELECTION, THE X-FILES) as the unforgettable ‘Uncle Roy’. The film veers from humor to intense drama at lightening speed and maintains a bizarre spirit throughout.
