IN STEREO centers on David (Micah Hauptman) and Brenda (Beau Garrett), who are perfect for each other and everyone knows it… except David and Brenda. After they break-up, their lives spiral out of control. David self-destructs as an artist while dating an immature woman who sleeps with his best friend. Brenda endures a failing acting career, an eviction notice, and a boyfriend who just doesn’t do it for her. And then chance brings Brenda and David back together on the streets of New York … at the worst possible time. mA sharply observed, un-romantic comedy by writer/director Mel Rodriguez III, IN STEREO is a stylish and striking first feature. With an innovative structure and bold performances, it offers an unflinching look at the complexity of modern relationships. Music is also an integral part of the film, with songs by Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Charles Bradley & Menahan Street Band and Budos Band. Director Rodriquez joins us for a lively conversation on the satisfaction of making an anti-romcom and working with a very talented group of rising new actors.
IN STEREO will open July 3, 2015 in the following cities: New York, Beverly Hills (Music Hall 3), Pasadena (Laemmle’s Playhouse 7), Las Vegas, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, New Orleans, San Francisco and Miami. It will also be available via VOD on July 3.
IN STEREO writer-director Mel Rodriguez III will participate in a Q&A after the 7:20 screening at the Music Hall on Friday, July 3rd.
“What ensues is a dark, manic farce, as much about the destructive things we do to those we care most about as it is a cautionary tale for love-seekers in their thirties.” – Matthew Kassel, New York Observer
