Comedy, Thriller

Ray Jepsen (John Magaro) is a humble co-owner of a hardware store who still can’t believe he managed to marry local beauty queen Stacy-Lynn. When his private investigator friend, Skip (Steve Zahn), reveals to Ray that Stacy-Lynn is having an affair, Ray decides to kill himself. He secures a gun and goes to a seedy motel parking lot to do the deed, but before he can pull the trigger, he is mistaken by a stranger for a low-rent hitman (a sinister Dylan Baker) and given an envelope full of cash and an address. Desperate to win back his self-respect and his wife, Ray decides to take the job — but soon wishes he had just killed himself.

Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Shane Atkinson, LaRoy is a quirky black crime comedy filled with eccentric characters, memorable performances, and wild twists. Well-crafted and deftly paced, this strikingly odd and menacing tale of betrayal, greed, and sacrifice will stick with you.––Karen Kemmerle
