After her philandering husband and unruly kids break her psyche, Jill upends the family dynamic by assuming the persona of a vicious dog.
Marianna Palka saw her indie thriller Bitch, which she directs and stars in, world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival this past January. Now, MPI Media Group is barking up a release on November 10, 2017.
Our own Fred Topel despised the film, calling it “a doggone piece of crap,” while Ben Larned absolutely adored it, declaring it “an insane, hilarious, and heartfelt dark comedy.”
In the film, “Jill, a lonely, unfulfilled housewife with four children, paces on her dining room table with a belt around her neck, contemplating a desperate end. Her husband, Bill, focused on his identity as breadwinner and an affair with a lusty co-worker, is as oblivious to Jill’s growing terror that she will do something destructive as he is to the panic at his unraveling company. Meanwhile, dogs bark and howl through the night, as one persistent mutt continually stalks the family’s yard. When Jill’s psyche finally breaks, she takes on a vicious new canine persona, and Bill is forced to become reacquainted with his children and sister-in-law as they attempt to keep the family together during this bizarre crisis.”
Jason Ritter, Jaime King, Marianna Palka, Brighton Sharbino, Rio Mangini, and Kingston Foster star.
Here’s the official trailer that’s weirdly sold as a comedy?
