MUBI Special

Beeswax

Andrew Bujalski United States, 2009

The personal and professional entanglements of twin sisters Jeannie and Lauren in Austin, over the ownership of Jeannie’s bright, candy-colored vintage clothing store, and the involvement of her ex-boyfriend. Soon everyone is trying to lend each other a hand but nothing is going according to plan.

Nights and Weekends

Greta Gerwig, Joe Swanberg United States, 2008

Mattie and James are in love and living in separate cities. But too many mornings and too many miles apart have taken a toll. As they both struggle with the distance between New York and Chicago, their visits become reminders of the difficulties rather than the pleasures of their relationship.

Baghead

Jay Duplass, Mark Duplass United States, 2008

Four struggling actors retreat to a cabin in Big Bear, California in order to write a screenplay that will make them all stars. Problem is: What happens when their story idea — a horror flick about a group of friends tormented by a villain with a bag over his head — starts to come true?

Hannah Takes the Stairs

Joe Swanberg United States, 2007

American independent filmmaker Joe Swanberg’s Hannah Takes the Stairs concerns Hannah (Greta Gerwig), a recent college graduate who spends one long, unsatisfying summer in the Windy City attempting to achieve romantic fulfillment in a seemingly endless series of relationships.

Mutual Appreciation

Andrew Bujalski United States, 2005

Adults in their 20s circle each other, their bodies in motion, with occasional attractions and lots of talk. Alan is a musician, just down to New York from Boston, hanging out with his friend Lawrence and Lawrence’s girlfriend Ellie. Alan and Ellie are on a bed talking.

Funny Ha Ha

Andrew Bujalski United States, 2002

When you graduate college you easily sashay into the world of adulthood, start a career, and get serious, right? Wrong. Marnie has left college, but not her drinking habits and her bad taste in bad men. It would be sad if it weren’t so funny.
