Bruce (United States | 2016, 1 hour 10 minutes )
Directed by: Phebe Szatmari
Reacting to the news that he is about to be a first time father, irresponsible artist Charlie agrees to enter the corporate world to create more stability for his new family.
Remolding himself in the ideal corporate image proves challenging and soul-crushing though, and just as he is at his breaking point he meets the incredibly free-spirited, and constantly inappropriate Bruce in an elevator. Bruce takes Charlie under his wing and through a series of drunken misadventures, graffiti, and bizarre pep-talks reconnects him with his sense of humor and his love of the arts. There’s an issue though, Bruce doesn’t exist. Charlie is the only person who can see and hear him.
Is Charlie having a nervous breakdown, or has the universe taken pity and sent him a magical spirit guide to Sherpa him and his young family to a happier life.
