Watch: Trailer for Workplace Indie Comedy 'Price Check' Starring Parker Posey

The Playlist By Charlie Schmidlin | The Playlist September 26, 2012 at 11:16AM

Among the many delights within Louis C.K.'s Emmy-winning comedy, “Louie,” the most surprisingly delightful has been Parker Posey's two-episode arc as a deceptively perfect romantic partner. Somewhat scarce on the film/TV scene in the past few years, Posey has nonetheless re-emerged recently in a smattering of interesting projects, including the Grace Kelly biopic “Grace of Monaco,” and now a glimpse of her latest independent comedy, “Price Check” appears a solid continuation of the actress' recent comic streak.

Price Check Parker Posey

Among the many delights within Louis C.K.'s Emmy-winning comedy, “Louie,” the most surprisingly delightful has been Parker Posey's two-episode arc as a deceptively perfect romantic partner. Somewhat scarce on the film/TV scene in the past few years, Posey has nonetheless re-emerged recently in a smattering of interesting projects, including the Grace Kelly biopicGrace of Monaco,” and now a glimpse of her latest independent comedy, “Price Check” appears a solid continuation of the actress' recent comic streak.

Starring Eric Mabius, Cheyenne Jackson, Annie Parisse and Josh Pais alongside Posey, the Michael Walker-directed film was picked up by IFC Films following its Sundance premiere earlier this year. Posey plays the over-exuberant boss to Mabius' debt-ridden underling at a supermarket pricing department, and after she expresses interest in raising him up to the executive level, both their professional and home lives threaten to crumble completely.

The trailer certainly plays on Posey's natural energy as a performer, lending a manic quality to the workplace-based comedy that could transfer into a worthwhile effort. There also remains the possibility of abundant mugging throughout, as is glimpsed at times in the trailer, but hopefully that's just a marketing focus and not the reality of the film.

Either way, it's a welcome return for Posey back on-screen, as “Price Check” opens on VOD October 11th, before being released in theatres November 16th. Check the trailer out below. [Variety]
