Read More: SXSW: How Natasha Lyonne and Judy Greer Escaped the Hollywood Boys Club for 'Fresno' Judy Greer is normally the level-headed sidekick, and Natasha Lyonne the crazy mess, but not this time around.

After Shannon relapses and accidentally kills a hotel guest, her and Martha go on an all-out adventure to cover up the crime.

SXSW 2015, The Average: ‘7 Chinese Brothers,’ ‘Adult Beginners,’ ‘Just Jim’ and More

SXSW 2015 Film Review

complete coverage of the SXSW Film Festival 2015

7 Chinese Brothers

Director/Screenwriter: Bob Byington

A man unaccustomed to telling the truth learns to at least describe it. Cast: Jason Schwartzman, Tunde Adebimpe, Eleanore Pienta, Olympia Dukakis, Stephen Root. (World Premiere) (film synopsis from sxsw.com)

Overall

The film is almost about nothing, just like the title of the film. Most of the time this doesn’t matter because we get to watch Schwartzman do many Schwartzman things, including acting opposite his real-life dog. There is a very sweet and surprisingly authentic death involving a key character. Besides that moment, when the film ends, you’ll quickly forget about it and move on.

Final Score: 6/10

 

Adult Beginners

Director: Ross Katz, Screenwriters: Jeff Cox, Elizabeth Flahive

Out of a job after a disastrous product launch, a big-city yuppie retreats to his suburban childhood home, in this heart-warming and hilarious film about crashing hard, »
