Exclusive Clip From Tribeca Film Festival Black Comedy Treatment
It's not uncommon at all for a washed-up celebrity to find themselves in rehab after a few too many years of hard living. So why wouldn't any enterprising young screenwriter try to take advantage of that situation? In the black comedy Treatment, which premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival on Friday, Humpday's Joshua Leonard stars as that very screenwriter, who's encouraged by his best friend to pony up $15,000 and join a famous actor he knows slightly (Ross Partridge) at a rehab facility called Wingspan. As the festival guide describes it, "not to be confused with your typical 'bromance,' Treatment picks up after the honeymoon, when there is some growing up to do and maybe even a little 'bromancipation."
To introduce you to the world of Wingspan and Leonard's aimless character we're debuting an exclusive clip from Treatment, which contains both the orientation video for Wingspan and shots of Leonard's character as he signs up for the facility. The comedic tone of the orientation video is perfect, a satire of all those cheesy self-help videos you see along with some imagery that, I admit, kinda makes me want to go there. Check out the clip below, and if you're in New York catch Treatment in its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this weekend.
