Director: Chadd Harbold
Stars: Brian Petsos, Oscar Isaac, Elijah Wood, Kristen Wiig, Adam Brody, Ryan Phillippe
Revenge for Jolly! might very well have our favorite premise of the entire Tribeca Film Festival: A sad sack (writer Brian Petsos) comes home from an alcoholic stupor to see that his beloved dog, Jolly, has been viciously killed, so, along with his nutty cousin (Drive’s Oscar Isaac), he packs a small arsenal of guns and drops as many fools as it takes to find out who killed the pooch.
As if that concept, which is ripe for dark comedy and all-out bloodshed, wasn’t hooky enough, Revenge for Jolly! features an awesome lineup of co-stars and one-scene-stealers, including Kristen Wiig, Elijah Wood, and Ryan Phillippe. We’re guessing that those big names also saw the loony potential in first-time director Chadd Harbold’s project—that, or they’re all unabashed dog lovers. Either one works for us.
