Classic mystery lovers will rejoice at this affectionate amateur detective adventure that casts a Brooklyn couple as a sort-of hipster Nick and Nora Charles. Barri (Sophia Takal) is an inquisitive ball of energy, so naturally she suspects foul play following the death of her elderly neighbor, and sets out with childlike enthusiasm to investigate. With the help of her roommate Jean (Alia Shawkat of “Arrested Development”), Barri embarks on a shenanigans-heavy surveillance mission—while her boyfriend Noah (director Lawrence Michael Levine) unsuccessfully attempts to rein her in, thinking his partner’s imagination is running wild after watching a little too much Hitchcock. But as the evidence starts to pile up, the unlikely sleuths uncover secrets harbored within their apartment building that paint everyone in a suspicious light. Also starring Jason Ritter (“Parenthood”) and TCFF perennial Kevin Corrigan, this is not your typical Brooklyn-set American indie, but a witty farce with a smart sensibility all its own.
