An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn trailer: Aubrey Plaza and Jermaine Clement embrace the absurd
Anyone who caught director Jim Hosking's The Greasy Strangler would have no doubt found it took an acquired taste to fully appreciate its oddness. An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn continues very much in the same vein, keeping the tone just as off-centre as his début. It hasn't played particularly well to critics so far but you get the feeling both this and the British director's first film will acquire a cult following as the years pass by. Take a look at the trailer for An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn above and you should get a good idea of what's to come.
After getting fired by her scheming husband Shane Danger from his cappuccino shop, dissatisfied Lulu Danger 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.
When Shane and his bumbling cohorts steal the cashbox from Lulu’s adopted vegan brother Adjay, specialist Colin enters the fray to retrieve the stolen funds. But Lulu seizes the opportunity to run off in search of her mystery man—and events only become stranger from there. This is a story of love, theft, athletic swimming, and a magical magical event.
Hosking writes and directs with Aubrey Plaza taking the title role, and Jemaine Clement, Matt Berry, Emile Hirsch, Craig Robinson and Sam Dissanayake all featuring in the cast.
An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn gets a mid-October US release but no news yet on a UK date.
