We think of May as the kickoff to the summer blockbusters and family-friendly films, but comedy has its place this month, too! At the end of the this month, we’ve got three very different comedies opening at our theatres, so grab your popcorn and get ready to laugh.
About My Father
Sebastian Maniscalco joins forces with two-time Oscar winner, Robert De Niro, in the new comedy ABOUT MY FATHER from Lionsgate. The fish out of water comedy centers around Sebastian who is encouraged by his fiancee to bring his immigrant, hairdresser father, Salvo (De Niro), to a weekend get-together with her super-rich and exceedingly eccentric family. The weekend develops into what can only be described as a culture clash, leaving Sebastian and Salvo to discover that the great thing about family is everything about family.
Comedian Bert Kreischer brings his stand-up comedy energy to the big screen! Set 23 years after the original story which inspired it, THE MACHINE finds Bert facing familial crisis and the arrival of his estranged father, played by Mark Hamill when the ghost of his booze-soaked past arrives. The R-Rated comedy, is one of our most anticipated movies of the month.
You Hurt My Feelings
From acclaimed filmmaker Nicole Holofcener comes a sharply observed comedy about a novelist whose longstanding marriage is suddenly upended when she overhears her husband give his honest reaction to her latest book. The A24 comedy explores trust, lies, and the things we say to the people we love most. Starring Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Tobias Menzies, Arian Moayed, Amber Tamblyn and David Cross.
