Synopsis

Directed by Bob Byington, Somebody Up There Likes Me is a smart, subversive comedy that skips through 35 years in the life of Max Youngman (Keith Poulson), his best and only friend Sal (Nick Offerman, "Parks and Recreation"), and the woman they both adore (Jess Weixler, Teeth). As they stumble in and out of hilariously misguided relationships — strung together with animated vignettes by Bob Sabiston (A Scanner Darkly) and an original score by Vampire Weekend's Chris Baio — Max never ages, holding on to a mysterious briefcase that may or may not contain the secret to life. Produced by Offerman and Hans Graffunder (Knight of Cups, To the Wonder), Somebody Up There Likes Me turned heads at its world premiere at the 2012 South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin. It went on to earn the Locarno Film Festival's Special Jury Prize, the first American film so honored.
