Nancy, Please Poster Edit

In a couple of weeks, the red carpet will roll out and lights will be dimmed for the Tribeca Film Festival, and a host of films will be unspooling for the first time in front of an audience. And one of the films hoping to earn attention from audiences will be Andrew Semans' dark, comic psychodrama "Nancy, Please."

Starring Will Rogers, Rebecca Lawrence and Eléonore Hendricks, the film tells the story of Paul (Rogers) a gifted graduate student at Yale who has finally moved in with his longtime girlfriend, Jen (Lawrence). A bright and promising future is ahead of them, but Paul has left an item of great importance at his old apartment: a tattered, personally annotated copy of Charles Dickens' "Little Dorrit," the subject of his dissertation, and he simply must have it back. Doing so means recovering it from his casually sinister and inexplicably vindictive former roommate, Nancy (Hendricks), who blithely thwarts Paul's increasingly frantic attempts at retrieval. His annoyance turns to rage and then to obsession, until his life begins to come undone, with things going from bad to worse.

The film marks the feature debut of Semans, and "Nancy, Please" will also be seeking a distributor at the festival. We're happy to unveil the official poster for the film, which nicely suggests the tone audiences will be in for. The Tribeca Film Festival runs from April 19-29.
