Afs Presents Best Of Sxsw: 7 Chinese Brothers

The content on this page is provided by a Time Out partner.

Special added show courtesy of SXSW and the filmmakers. Even a large festival like SXSW cannot always accomodate everyone who wants to see a given film. The new Bob Byington film was one of the films in greatest demand this year and not everyone who wanted to see it was able to get in, so we are pleased to add this additional screening so everyone can see one of the very best of the fest. Made in Austin and a recipient of an Austin Film Society Filmmaker Grant. From SXSW: Jason Schwartzman portrays Larry, an inebriated sad sack who rides a tide of booze onto the shores of an undiscriminating Quick-Lube. The only bright spot is probably his boss, Lupe (Eleanore Pienta). Will Larry keep it together long enough to win the girl, provide for his French bulldog (Schwartzman's real-life dog Arrow), laze about with his friend Major (TV on the Radio's Tunde Adebimpe), and do his cantankerous grandmother (Olympia Dukakis) proud? 7 CHINESE BROTHERS - written & directed by Bob Byington (SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME) - is empathetic in tone, dry in humor. Schwartzman is in every scene and offers one of his most finely nuanced performances.
