About the Movie
This critically acclaimed, award-winning Official Selection of South by Southwest 2015 is a grounded romantic dramedy about two strangers who are stuck house sitting together. Mary, a live-in-nanny and Homer, a clown-magician meet at a 10-year-old’s birthday party and both get fired by the end of the day. With nowhere to go, they are forced to house sit for Homer’s successful and pompous childhood friend, Adam. This odd couple gets off to a rocky start. They soon realize the gravity of their situation and the necessity of joining forces, making money and pulling themselves out of the emotional hole they have lived in for years. Mary inspires Homer to join Adam’s comedy competition to help them escape their impending debt. However, Homer must first overcome his fear of performing and the fact that he has forgotten how to be funny. LIFE IN COLOR won the Special Jury Prize at the Napa Valley Film Festival and the Prix d’Or at the Lower East Side Film Festival. The cast includes, Josh McDermitt from THE WALKING DEAD and MAD MEN, Jim O’Heir from PARKS AND RECREATION, and well-known comedians Adam Lustick from Harvard Sailing Team and THE OFFICE, and Fortune Feimster from CHELSEA LATELY and LAST COMIC STANDING. LIFE IN COLOR marks Katharine Emmer’s directorial debut. She also wrote, produced, edited and stars in the film.
Great Character Chemistry
The two leads in this movie have a great natural chemistry. They have a way of making you feel the story line ups an downs. I also enjoyed the depth explored of each character and despite the tragic side, there's still a lot of comedic edge that keeps you entertained. I enjoyed the performances by all of the cast, but especially Katharine Emmer (Mary)& Josh McDermitt (Homer).
I loved this movie. The acting is superb, some of the best performances I’ve seen in an independent film in a long time. Honest and real and funny.
This is a great little indie film with soul and heart. While it touches on some dark issues, it’s never a real downer, and that is its strength. The main characters feel like people we know and want to know more about; a tribute to the script and the two leads who turn in strong performances. Movies about depression and second chances are not for everyone, but if you like rooting for the underdog, you’ll like Life in Color.
