2016, U.S., 78 min.
A simple lunch turns into a darkly comedic catastrophe when Jasmine and Penn, a new couple with an uncertain future, find an anonymous suicide note at the home of the happiest couple they know. Punctuated with witty dialogue and performances as fresh as a spring salad, the hilarious and awkward unraveling of who wrote the note is a must-see. First-time feature director Carly Usdin was a producer of Logo Network’s lively “NewNowNext” music series, and writer/co-star Brittani Nichols, who plays Jasmine, has an impressive list of credits, including a recurring role on the first season of “Transparent.”
