Trailer Alert/Movie Recommendation – My Blind Brother

The Douche, Ben Wyatt and Mona-Lisa Saperstein walk onto a movie set….my Parks and Recs peeps will get that. For everyone else, Nick Kroll, Adam Scott and Jenny Slate are starring in a movie together, and unsurprisingly, it’s hilarious. “But Matt, how could you know it’s hilarious if it comes out at the end of September? Are you a time traveler?” No, you peon. No, I am not. I actually saw it earlier this year at SXSW 2016. It was one of the movies I had on my “cut list”. I’ll explain. Basically, when I go to SXSW I make a list of all the movies I definitely want to see and the rest go on a “cut list”. These are movies I don’t mind missing if it means seeing something else or getting some dank Austin BBQ. I am SO glad that ‘My Blind Brother’ wasn’t one of the movies I cut for brisket (there were a few).

It follows Bill (Kroll) and his blind brother Robbie (Scott). Robbie is a hometown hero, crazy athlete and ladies man. These traits combine to cast one hell of a shadow on Bill, who couldn’t be more supportive of his brother even though he clearly gets cast aside. When a love triangle forms, with the addition of Rose (Slate), the boat starts to rock (Pun intended…see the movie and you’ll get it.).
