MISERY LOVES COMPANY is a film about personal growth and emotional understanding in the guise of a dark romantic comedy. Brian Norton (Peter O'Brien) is a broken-hearted projectionist with a chip on his shoulder. After getting dumped by his current love interest, Alison (Priscilla Wilson), he inverts to a retrospective state in search of the source of his dilemma, but when your reality is primarily fantasy, it's easy to lose sight of things. Brian struggles for understanding as his best friend, Cliff (Steven Bendler), encourages him to put his emotions aside and focus on friendships instead of relationships. It is through Cliff that Brian meets Veronica (Carly Ballister) and his inner conflict begins. His problems are exacerbated by the adolescent advice of his friends, Les (Shawn Stephens) and Wayne (Konrad Mann). What follows is an exploration of options, expectations and experiences that serve to remind Brian of one thing... You're never as alone as you feel. Written by
I saw this movie in its premier at the Palisades Mall Movie theater. There was 200+ people there and it got raves at the ending. I saw it again at a little theater in Nyack New York. It's a bitter sweet love story - the music is great! the acting superb!!!
Peter O'Brien is an amazing writer, producer, director, actor. This film, done on a small budget, is amazing. Beautiful scenery in the Hudson Valley, New York.
It's worth bringing it back and a submission to a 'Indie Film Festival' is a must!!! Don't let this little gem get lost!!!! My favorite part is filmed in D&D's Restaurant & Pub in New City, New York. The band 'Trouble Bound' plays "It Don't Matter" and "Here To The End" they are excellent, as is the rest of the music in this film. All the songs go with the theme of each scene.
