#SourParty #IndieFilmmaking #BehindTheScenes


In this hysterically funny, charmingly self-deprecating, strangely poignant, and riotously unnerving raunchy comedy that carries the rhythm of an energetically-charged thrilling nail-biter, two broke, flailing 30-somethings are on a quest to scrounge money from a collection of low lives and failed artists in an attempt to show up to a baby shower with a proper gift. What starts as a premise about an innocuous sisterly gesture ultimately turns into an adventure that goes very, very wrong with much wisdom gained too, about self, friendship, family, and the end of a gloriously squandered youth in all its wondrous, terrifying splendor.
