The American Indie auteur and “mumblecore” pioneer Andrew Bujalski, who brought us the brilliant riff on 1980s technology and geekism, COMPUTER CHESS, takes on the current American small business world.
Lisa (Regina Hall) is the last person you’d expect to find in a highway-side “sports bar with curves,”– but as general manager at Double Whammies, she’s come to love the place, and its customers. An instinctive den mother, she nurtures and protects her ‘girls’ on the staff fiercely — but over the course of one trying day, her optimism is battered from every direction… Double Whammies sells a big, weird American fantasy, but what happens when reality pokes a bunch of holes in it?
