Small Apartments

Preview by Jack Foley

MATT Lucas (Alice In Wonderland, Bridesmaids, TV’s Little Britain) leads a hilarious all-star cast in the new comedy Small Apartments, available on DVD on July 29, 2013, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Lucas appears in his first leading role as Franklin Franklin, a clumsy recluse who embarks on a hapless cover-up after accidentally killing his landlord.

The film also stars Billy Crystal (When Harry Met Sally), Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises), James Marsden (X-Men: The Last Stand), Peter Stormare (Fargo), Amanda Plummer (Pulp Fiction), Dolph Lundgren (The Expendables), Rosie Perez (Pineapple Express) and Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect), with James Caan (The Godfather) and Johnny Knoxville (Jackass: The Movie).

From award-winning film and music video director Jonas Åkerlund (Spun, Lady Gaga’s Paparazzi), Small Apartments comes furnished with two featurettes: How to Build A Gravity Bong features actor Johnny Knoxville crafting the ideal smoking device; and Small Apartments: Behind The Scenes gives an inside look into the production of the film, including snippets from the cast and crew on working with Jonas Åkerlund.

Synopsis

Franklin Franklin (Lucas) plays the alphorn and dreams of Switzerland. His crazy brother sends him fingernail clippings in the mail. One of his neighbours is a forgetful pot-head, the other a gruff busy-body who doesn’t miss anything.

Across the street live a mother and her 15-year-old daughter, whom he likes to watch from his window, but none of these are Franklin’s real problem. The real problem is his landlord; lying dead on the kitchen floor. Switzerland seems further and further away.

Small Apartments was written by Chris Millis and based on his novel. It was produced by Ash R. Shah, Timothy Wayne Peternel, David Hillary and Bonnie Timmermann. Ben Feingold executive produced, along with John Glynn, Bridget McMeel and Chris Millis.

The running time is approximately 92 minutes and it is rated 18.
