CHARLIE CASANOVA
2012, 94 min, Ireland, Dir: Terry McMahon

To an outsider, Charlie Barnum’s life is picture-perfect: He is successful in work, marriage and friendship. But in reality Charlie’s business is shrinking and he’s caught up in an affair with his best friend’s wife. While driving to a conference one day, Charlie accidentally kills a girl in a hit-and-run. Unsure of what to do with the terrible predicament facing him, Charlie uses a deck of cards to determine his fate. The first film to be entirely conceived via Facebook, this pitch-black, highly controversial comedy made love-it-or-hate-it waves at SXSW 2011.
