A clever, but awkward, super-linguist squirms his way through adorable Manhattan social situations
6 May 2014 | by filter-14See all my reviews

This film excelled as a prize winner at the Friars Club Comedy Film Festival. The writing of Michael Levi Harris is clever, amusing and sweet, but not sugary. A lot happens in 20 minutes, but you don't feel rushed. Director Michael Urie has a great feel for the audience, which ate up his timing. Each little surprise yielded a laugh. Some were so clever, a pause was required - and he always waited for us. We all wish we had friends like the adorable Harris, also playing the title role. His character is seamlessly clever beyond expectation, yet warmly clueless. Tovah Feldshuh lights up the screen with energy, charm and pseudo-sophistication. The Hyperglot is complemented perfectly by the settings in Manhattan, where you can hear a different language on every street corner.
