The Comedy

de Rick Alverson

Trailer

Synopsis

A wealthy and apathetic New Yorker, Swanson is the prototype of a hipster. Unrelated to this fact (or maybe not), he’s also what’s commonly known as a dickhead. He spends his days doing next to nothing except bothering and ridiculing everyone around him. Rick Alverson films this persona non grata’s everyday life from a distance that makes the film a harsh, generational portrait.
