Loitering With Intent

While Cannes might be dominating the buzz at the moment, on Wednesday, April 16th, the Tribeca Film Festival kicks off, bringing audiences cinematic treasures a little bit closer to home. And one movie to keep an eye on is "Loitering With Intent."

 

It's the latest from Pulitzer Prize finalist Adam Rapp, who earned the honor for his 2006 play "Red Light Winter," and previously directed "Winter Passing" starring Zooey Deschanel and Will Ferrell in 2005. This time around, the director has rounded up Michael Godere, Ivan Martin, Marisa Tomei, Sam Rockwell, Brian Geraghty, Isabelle McNally and Natasha Lyonne to star in "Loitering With Intent" — also co-written by leads Ivan Martin and Michael Godere — and it follows a couple of out-of-work actors who think they have the next hot script. Here's the official synopsis:

Through a chance encounter, out-of-work-actors Raphael (Ivan Martin) and Dominic (Michael Godere) hustle a prominent New York producer into believing they've written a hot movie script. She takes the bait and they have 10 days to deliver the goods. So the duo escape the throes of New York City and head upstate for the pastoral beauty of an eccentric country manor, where they plan to hunker down and write the screenplay that is sure to solve all of their problems. While basking in monastic solace, their writer’s retreat is interrupted by a young beautiful gardener; Dominic’s sister Gigi (Marisa Tomei); and Wayne and Devon (Sam Rockwell and Brian Geraghty), Gigi’s troubled boyfriend and his pleasure-seeking younger brother. This constellation of characters -- with lunatic yearnings for love, sex, and romance -- offer anything but a good setting for the two fledgling screenwriters. What ensues is a bacchanalian romp that will pique anxieties and challenge Raphael and Dominic’s long-standing friendship. LOITERING WITH INTENT was directed by Adam Rapp, with a screenplay by Martin and Godere. 


And in this exclusive clip, we spend a comedic moment with Gigi and Wayne at the writer's retreat, where their relationship seems to be slightly on edge. 

"Loitering With Intent" premieres on Friday, April 18th at 6pm at the Tribeca Performing Arts Center, and it is playing as part of the World Narrative Competition. Watch below.
