Movie editing partners Darryl and Nick are hired to save a film on the brink of ruin. In the midst of the project Darryl finds his relationship in trouble and Nick’s long-term girlfriend is threatened, as he grows closer to the film’s starlet. Relationship troubles escalate, as the film’s Director grows increasingly needy, all the while the editing duo’s partnership is tested by difficult industry challenges.
Supporting Characters is an entertaining buddy-comedy that provides a glimpse inside the movie industry while exploring human relationships and examining the familiar search for financial and romantic security. Director Dan Schechter delivers a film-centric tale that does not alienate a non-industry audience, but, instead, provides unique insight into the film world balanced against a humorous exploration of relationship dynamics.
After Sidewalk Schechter will head to work on his new project, an Elmore Leonard adaptation starring Jennifer Aniston. Schechter, Co-writer and star, Tarik Lowe, and stars Alex Karpovsky, Sophia Takal and Kevin Corrigan are scheduled to attend the opening night screening.
