A Reasonable Request is a very, very dark comedy following a desperate son trying to reconnect with his estranged father to ask an unspeakable favour that will change their lives forever…
A brilliant piece of screenwriting that will have you belly laughing while you cringe out of utter disgust and awkwardness. A stellar cast of Stephen Ellis (Hail Caesar!, Delivery Man, You’re the Worst) and John Ennis (Walk Hard, Eight Legged Freaks, Zodiac) show off their deadpan comedy chops in a diner scene you imagine would have been a nightmare to try and film with spontaneous giggling from cast and crew bound to occur.
Winner of Best Comedy at HollyShorts Film Festival, and nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at both Sundance and SXSW Film Festival.
Director: Andrew Laurich
