Narrative

Izzy Gets The F*ck Across Town

Director CHRISTIAN PAPIERNIAK Starring Mackenzie Davis, Alex Russell, Lakeith Stanfield, Carrie Coon, Haley Joel Osment, Alia Shawkat, Annie Potts, Brandon T. Jackson, Rob Huebel, Sheldon Bailey, Meghan Lennox, Dolly Wells

Riot grrrl rocker Izzy wakes up hungover AF to find out that her ex-boyfriend is celebrating his engagement to her ex-best friend at a bougie party across town. Not having a car in Los Angeles is not going to stop her from stopping them.

Writer-Director Christian Papierniak’s ensemble cast showcases the city’s finest and weirdest inhabitants in this riotous love letter to Los Angeles, set to a blazing punk rock soundtrack. Producer and firecracker lead Mackenzie Davis shines as the shameless hot mess that is Izzy, reminding us that adulting – and walking from the westside to Los Feliz – is hard.
