U.S. Theatrical Premiere
"[Director Grippa] manages to hit the right emotional chords" -Chicago Tribune
Michael (Maximilian Osinski) and Eddie (Gene Gallerano) are two unemployed college graduates who rent an "apartment garage" from Stan (Louis Zorich), an old war veteran, and begin their tumultuous transition into the real world. Over the course of 30 days Michael realizes he has more in common with Stan than he does with his best friend. While Eddie is desperate to find a "real" job and get as far away from his parents as possible, Michael wishes he could go back to the house he grew up in before he was faced with a personal tragedy. Starring Tony nominated actor Louis Zorich along with newcomers Maximilian Osinski and Gene Gallerano, Running Funny is a story about accepting the inevitable changes in life which means that eventually, you have to stop running in order to move ahead.
Directed by Anthony Grippa, U.S.A., 2007, BetaSP, 75 mins.
