Storyline

THE DRY SPELL is an offbeat comedy depicting the deterioration of mental health in the absence of sex. With its unique style, THE DRY SPELL provides a penetrating look into the disturbed psyche of a man alone. The story chronicles the comic missteps of the irreverent Josey Fargo as he desperately seeks a new mate. It's been nearly two years since this dry spell began, and the urgency to find new love is boiling over. Josey's self-confidence is at an all-time low. Having very little to offer, Josey must try harder than other men. And try he does. THE DRY SPELL is a multi-layered comedy that fearlessly delves into some thorny issues, such as the fragility of self-confidence and the fear of growing old alone. Written by Anon

This film kicked ass at Slamdance 2005. On the streets of Park City you heard "go see THE DRY SPELL" instead of some already sold out studio Sundance film. What company has the balls to put out the next cult classic which is better than NAPOLEAN DYNAMITE? Lions Gate? Fine Line? Fox Searchlight? MTV? Come on boys....step up to the plate and let the world see this unorthodox jewel! It's not like it would take a whole hell of a lot of acquisition money to get this film into theaters. I know the ego driven, keeping up with the Joneses, studios always want to out do each other. Well, this is your opportunity to make everyone else look like they missed the boat! Put it out! America loves the quirky anti-hero.....'JEEZE'!
