An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn

A cult film in the making, Jim Hosking’s wildly absurdist follow-up to The Greasy Stranger stars Aubrey Plaza and Jemaine Clement as small-town oddballs with best laid plans.

Produced by Ben Wheatley and featuring an all-star indie-comedy cast, An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn is one of the most daring and singular comedies to be released in years. After getting fired by her scheming husband Shane Danger (Emile Hirsch), the dissatisfied Lulu (Aubrey Plaza) is stunned when a TV commercial for “An Evening With Beverly Luff Linn For One Magical Night Only” reveals a mysterious man from her past (Craig Robinson). When Shane and his bumbling cohorts steal the cashbox from Lulu’s adopted vegan brother, specialist Colin (Jemaine Clement) is hired to retrieve the stolen funds. Lulu seizes the opportunity to run off in search of her mystery man and things only get weirder from there in Jim Hosking’s delightfully bizarre follow up to The Greasy Strangler — showcasing the director’s innate gift for outrageous absurdity, and pushing the boundaries of storytelling into the wild unknowns of glorious outsider art.

“An Evening with Beverly Luff Linn presents a playful and often charming blend of outré humour and genuine emotion that makes [director Jim Hosking] one of the most distinctive new voices in current cinema.”
