SUPPORTING CHARACTERS

Supporting_keyart

Best friends Nick (Alex Karpovsky, “Girls”) and Darryl (co-writer Tarik Lowe) are a New York film editing duo hired to salvage a botched comedy from a manic director (Kevin Corrigan, Pineapple Express) gone AWOL. But what starts as a simple job quickly sends their relationships—with their significant others and each other—reeling. Amidst trouble with his fiancée (Sophia Takal, V/H/S), Nick finds himself falling for the film's flirtatious ingénue (Arielle Kebbel, “90210”); Darryl, meanwhile, struggles to focus on his editing work in between fights with his tempestuous girlfriend (Melonie Diaz, Be Kind Rewind). With real humor and heart, Supporting Characters offers a sharp, knowing take on life and love in the big city.

What The Critics Are Saying

“A behind-the-scenes relationship film with refreshingly little interest in mythologizing or caricaturing the film biz its protagonists inhabit…earns a steady stream of laughs while taking its questions about grown-up romance seriously.” The Hollywood Reporter

 

“It charmed the pants right off me…genuinely written with feeling, humor and friendship that feels true and complicated.” – Filmmaker Magazine

 

“Part bromance, part ode to '70s comedies like Modern Romance… its honest and smart look at relationships and friendship inside the bubble of NYC would work as a perfect double feature with Lena Dunham's Tiny Furniture.” – Fandango
