(Andrew Bujalski, USA, 2009, 35mm, 100 min)

An established member of the "mumblecore" movement, Andrew Bujalski’s perceptive films are sympathetic yet critical accounts of his generation. Funny Ha Ha and Mutual Appreciation assessed the social and sexual awkwardness of aimless post-college 20-somethings. Beeswax takes it up a notch, as Bujalski shifts his focus to more mature subject matter. Jeannie co-owns a vintage clothing shop with an old friend who threatens her with a lawsuit when their relationship goes sour. Turning to her twin sister Lauren’s ex-boyfriend for advice, Jeannie quickly becomes involved with him. This is a humorous and heartfelt look at family, responsibility and relationships.

“Beeswax, the third feature from writer-director Andrew Bujalski, is a major statement spoken softly.” —Mark Olsen, LA Times

"Beeswax is pushing the little movement that could into the Amerindie mainstream." -Seattle Weekly
