"Natural Selection" swept the jury awards at SXSW 2011, and has been generally hailed especially for Rachael Harris' performance, a dramatic turn from a well-established comedienne. The feature debut from writer/director Robbie Pickering, the film stars Harris as mousey Texas housewife Lindy who has been denied sex by her husband Abe (John Diehl) for 25 years because their religion expressly forbids copulation without the express purpose of procreation, and wouldn't you know it, Lindy can't have any "special babies."

Russell’s “I Heart Huckabees” and “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” would someday be an Academy Award-nominated actor?
