How well do we really know our oldest friends? What if you were remembered for one decision, one act, or one moment in your life?
When their obnoxious and over-served best man, Lumpy [Tyler Labine], unexpectedly dies at their destination wedding in Phoenix, a bride & groom [Jess Weixler & Justin Long] are forced to cancel their honeymoon and fly home to the snowy Midwest to arrange for his funeral. But getting Lumpy’s body back to Minneapolis is just the start of their adventure, as the well-intended sacrifice surprises at every turn. And when the newlyweds’ path leads them to a fifteen year-old girl in a small, northern Minnesota town [Addison Timlin], all bets are off on who Lumpy really was.
Unpredictable, quirky, and emotionally raw at the same time, LUMPY was filmed on location in Minneapolis and Los Angeles. It is the first feature from writer/director Ted Koland. The award-winning cast also includes Golden Globe and AFI nominee Frances O’Connor [A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Mansfield Park, Madame Bovary] and Evan Jones [8 MILE, BOOK OF ELI].
The film will be released in theaters in 2012.
