Call Me Brother

After years of separation, Lisa, an awkward girl in her late teens is reunited with her brother, Tony and father, Frank for a summer weekend while her mother is on a trip. Revisiting their past, Lisa and Tony find comfort in each other in an off-kilter world. Alongside an ensemble cast of shitty friends and dysfunctional family members, we watch as Tony and Lisa grow more intimate and discover feelings that they didn’t know were there.

Thank you for your consideration in screening Call Me Brother. Christina Parrish, the writer and star, and myself wanted to tell a story that explores taboo and challenging themes through the lens of a quirky coming of age comedy.
