Humpday Synopsis

Itís been a decade since Ben and Andrew were the bad boys of their college campus. Ben has settled down and found a job, wife, and home. Andrew took the alternate route as a vagabond artist, skipping the globe from Chiapas to Cambodia. When Andrew shows up, unannounced, on Benís doorstep, they easily fall back into their old dynamic of heterosexual one-upmanship. After a night of perfunctory carousing, the two find themselves locked in a mutual dare: to enter an amateur porn contest. But what kind of boundary-breaking porn can two dudes make? After the booze and ďbig talkĒ run out, only one idea remainsóthey will have sex togetherÖon camera. Itís not gay; itís beyond gay. Itís not porn; itís an art project. But how will it work? And more importantly, who will tell Anna, Benís wife? Judging by writer and director Lynn Shelton, it takes a talented woman to unearth the biggest ironies in the male ego. Humpday is a buddy movie gone wild. Shelton expertly mines this clever construct for every possible comedic and irreverent moment. The three lead actors deliver fine-tuned performances amidst postmodern patter and tight, crisp storytelling. Sheltonís command of her craft shines brightest when our two gentlemen finally get down to the task at hand: creating a classic ďwriggle in your seatĒ moment of truth.

Emily Blunt And Rachel Weisz Going Mumblecore With Lynn Shelton Emily Blunt And Rachel Weisz Going Mumblecore With Lynn Shelton
The film, like Humpday, will be semi-improvised, and it should be very, very interesting to see how trained pros like Weisz and Blunt fit into the mumblecore world of just shooting a scene until it feels right

She didn't specify precisely what she'd be doing on the film, but given that she said she's working with producers Anne Carey and Ted Hope, it's safe to assume she'll be involved in the writing and the directing process as well

Humpday's Joshua Leonard Is Telling A Lie Humpday's Joshua Leonard Is Telling A Lie
The original story is pretty slim on plot and characters, and presumably Leonard and company will have fleshed things out a good bit, but given the involvement of everyone in mumblecore movies like Humpday or Alexander the Last, I'm betting on some laconic, low-key scenes
