Okay, here’s what we’re looking at: Jennifer (Prepon) just left her job; her boyfriend Paul (Bryan Greenberg, Friends With Benefits) has been cheating; and her cynical sister Penny (Walker) has an inappropriate announcement. And then there’s Stan (Matt Bush, Margaret), who’s in love with Jennifer, and Kenny (Tate Ellington), who’s in love with Penny. Throw in a party to celebrate Jennifer’s 30th birthday, a couple of dueling bands in the back yard and a manic depressive party photographer who may have forgotten to take his meds, and you’ve got a fairly madcap scenario in the making.
Featuring a very talented cast of comedic talents (including Compliance‘s Dreama Walker in a refreshingly breezy role), Ishai Setton‘s The Kitchen takes the party-where-everything-goes-wrong to a new level. It’s Jennifer’s (Laura Prepon) thirtieth birthday, and the last thing she wants to celebrate is her life, considering she’s saddled with a scheming ex-boyfriend (Bryan Greenberg), a sister who can’t manage to filter any of her thoughts and opinions (Walker), and a best friend who might be throwing her said party out of more than just the goodness of his heart (Matt Bush). Set entirely inside Jennifer’s kitchen, The Kitchen looks to be a clever, tightly-wound, and amusing comedy of manners (or, non-manners in some cases). In fact, our own dear leader Neil Miller loved the film when he saw it back in October at the Austin Film Festival, writing that the “entire film works on the economics of scale, in »
