|Donald Cried – Trailer
Director/writer/star Kris Avedisian expertly deconstructs the contemporary obsession with the “man-child” in this darkly funny story about former childhood best friends who reconnect decades later in their working-class Rhode Island neighborhood. Peter Latang (Jesse Wakeman) left his childhood home to reinvent himself as a slick Wall Street mover and shaker. When he’s forced to return home to bury his grandmother, he loses his wallet on the trip. Stranded and broke, Peter looks to the only person he can think of to help him outâ€”his next-door neighbor and former childhood friend Donald (played by Avedisian). The ever-eccentric Donald hasn’t changed a bit, and what starts as a simple favor turns into a long and unhinged van ride into their past. Avedisianâ€™s pitch-perfect first feature is a brilliant twist on the family-reunion melodrama and the classic buddy comedy.
