Jill Soloway may be marking her feature length directorial debut with “Afternoon Delight” but there’s a good chance that she’s been involved with something you’ve enjoyed over the years. As a writer she’s worked on such projects as “United States of Tara,” “Six Feet Under,“ and even a couple of episodes of “The Oblongs”! After getting a few short films under her belt, Jill Soloway turned her sights to writing and directing a feature length dramedy about the difficulties of marriage and prostitutes. It’s a tale as old as time. Journey below to check out the first three clips from the film which features Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor, Jane Lynch and Jessica St. Clair. Here's the official synopsis:

Jill Soloway may be marking her feature length directorial debut with “Afternoon Delight” but there’s a good chance that she’s been involved with something you’ve enjoyed over the years. As a writer she’s worked on such projects as “United States of Tara,” “Six Feet Under,“ and even a couple of episodes of “The Oblongs”!  After getting a few short films under her belt, Jill Soloway turned her sights to writing and directing a feature length dramedy about the difficulties of marriage and prostitutes. It’s a tale as old as time. Journey below to check out the first three clips from the film which features Kathryn Hahn, Juno Temple, Josh Radnor, Jane Lynch and Jessica St. Clair. Here's the official synopsis:

Rachel is a quick-witted and lovable, yet tightly coiled, thirty-something steeped in the creative class of Los Angeles’s bohemian, affluent Silver Lake neighborhood.  Everything looks just right— chic modernist home, successful husband, adorable child, and a hipster wardrobe.  So why is she going out of her gourd with ennui?

Deadened by the stultifiying realities of preschool auctions, a lackluster sex life, and a career that’s gone kaput, Rachel visits a strip club to spice up her marriage and meets McKenna, a stripper whom she becomes obsessed with saving.  She decides to adopt McKenna as her live-in nanny and this bold move unleashes unimagined and colorful waves of change into her life and community.

We're big fans of both Hahn and Temple, and teaming them together makes this an enticing package all around. “Afternoon Delight” premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2013 and garnered Jill a directing award in the U.S. Dramatic Competition, and we thought it was pretty good too. Check out the clips below.
