"NATURAL SELECTION"
dir. Robbie Pickering. 90 min.
Clip

After winning nearly every prize at SXSW — the Grand Jury Prize, the Audience Award and prizes for editing, sound, screenplay and two breakthrough performances — this oddball comedy about a woman who gets to know her dying husband's illegitimate 23-year-old son on a road trip makes its second festival appearance at the LRFF, where it's surely the favorite to win the Golden Rock Award for Best Narrative Film. Here's how Logan Hill, a SXSW juror, described "Natural Selection" on New York magazine's Vulture blog: "It's a wild road-trip odd-couple romp, a pitch-perfect satire of marriage and morality, a perversely satisfying romance, an oddly empowering women's anthem, and, above all, the best sort of comedy — one that's absolutely grounded in messy human drama." First time director Robbie Pickering will be in attendance.

8:40 p.m. Thu., Riverdale
2:20 p.m. Sat., Riverdale
