Storyline

A young and talented songwriter, a beautiful but self-absorbed blimp pilot. Are they destined to be together or is it just Arthur Ibbet's obsession to win her heart? In this funny and sometimes melancholy tale, Arthur sets out to become the National Champion of Bingo to impress his love, who comes from a long line of Bingo Champions. As he perfects his system to win, and seeks out the elusive former Bingo Master, his music and friends become more and more distant. Written by Anonymous

"It's NOT about the MONEY"
25 March 2000 | by (Boston, Ma) – See all my reviews

In his first full-length film, director ROBERT COLMAN successfully weaves together musical talent, comedy and a deeper message. FOLLOW THE BROCCOLI ("FTB") -- a film that is only just beginning to gain the true recognition that it deserves -- examines the collective angst of the generation that was not quite "Gen-X" in its search for meaning. Arthur Ibbit's rise to fame in the ultra-competitive bingo world and the mixed emotions that accompany his success reflect a clash of values inherent in the rat race of today's high tech world. The search for Joe King, as the key to it all, lends an epic quality to the film. Outstanding performances by actors Barlow Adamson, Rose Carlson and Glen Phillips bring a funny and innovative script alive. In yet another quirky independent film to come out of the Boston area, Colman makes use of the Charles, the Common and the Capital as backdrops to Arthur Ibbit's search for meaning in life that is at once witty and self-reflective.

FOLLOW THE BROCCOLI is a hip and wacky examination of a young singer-songwriter's life at the end of the twentieth century -- and a must see!
