Storyline

Living In Missouri is a comedy of manners which tells the story of RYAN, AMY, and TODD, whose humdrum Midwestern lives are starting to come apart at the seams. Personal betrayals abound when childhood friendships, broken-down marriages, and long-repressed desires come into conflict over the course of one tumultuous Missouri autumn. Ryan and Todd have been best friends since the 7th grade, and time has not been kind to either of them. Ryan is now married to Amy, with two young children and a 9-to-5 job he hates. The sexually frustrated Todd still lives in the basement of his parents' house, works in a video store, and secretly envies Ryan's married life. Meanwhile, Amy is stuck in the middle, balancing career and family with almost no help from Ryan, whose selfish behavior is quickly destroying what's left of their marriage. When Amy secretly turns to Todd for a shoulder to cry on, the two of them begin meeting regularly to discuss her marital woes. Todd misinterprets Amy's attention ... Written by Anonymous

Trivia

According to an interview with the director, Shaun Peterson, the movie is loosely based on an online persona Connor Ratliff created, named Ryan Johnson, for a fake Star Wars rumors site in 1998, when the Star Wars prequels were in production. Ratliff spun a fictional family around the Ryan character to such depth that he soon realized he had created viable characters for a film, and proceeded to write the story of Ryan Johnson, Amy Johnson, and his friend Todd.

This independent film is interesting and twisted. I watched it not knowing what I was getting into. It was surprisingly good. Addressing co-dependency in a way I haven't seen, it is frustrating to see the abuse one takes from another.
