"Gayby"

"Gayby" has gone to Wolfe Releasing for US distribution. The comedy, written and directed by Jonathan Lisecki, premiered at SXSW and won audience and jury prizes at Ashland Independent Film Festival. The story, based on Lisecki's 2010 short film of the same name (that screened at over a hundred festivals), is about a gay man and a straight woman who decide to have a baby together. Wolfe's Maria Lynn says, “'Gayby' is the funniest movie I’ve seen in years." Wolfe will release the film theatrically later this year in collaboration with The Film Collaborative; a DVD/VOD release will follow in 2013. A full synopsis is below:

Jenn (Jenn Harris) and Matt (Matthew Wilkas) are best friends from college who are now in their thirties. Single by choice, Jenn spends her days teaching hot yoga and running errands for her boss. Matt suffers from comic-book writer’s block and can’t get over his ex-boyfriend. They decide to fulfill a youthful promise to have a child together … the old-fashioned way. Can they navigate the serious and unexpected snags they hit as they attempt to get their careers and dating lives back on track in preparation for parenthood?
