SYNOPSIS
For Ron Hogan, life is fine… not great, not good, just… fine, and on the verge of retiring any sort of dream he’s harbored of a life less ordinary. Pushing thirty and working a thankless office job, internet dating is one more routine in Ron Hogan’s well-ordered life. God knows his lonely roommate and lonelier co-workers have tried, but not even a dart to the back of the head can shake him out of his funk. Until he meets Stacy, a fellow working stiff who disarms him by speaking the language of his loneliest moments. Featuring a score by acclaimed jazz composer John Medeski, Audrey the Trainwreck is Frank V. Ross’s 5th feature film, an exploration of what might happen if one man’s silent desperation got a little bit louder.

LOGLINE
Most men live lives of quiet desperation – Ron’s desperation is about to get loud…

PULL QUOTES

  • “[A] scruffy, tender but very funny romance… Ross is something of an indie Robert Altman, with his huge cast of characters and plaited strands of dialogue, and he has a sharp and comic eye for intimacy, domesticity, and practicality.”
    Richard Brody, The New Yorker
  • “…A stunningly realistic portrait of today’s late 20-something white urban working class.”
    Don Simpson, Smells Like Screen Spirit
  • “Ordinary life’s manic seesaw between misery and levity…”
    Karina Longworth, Village Voice
