the first time ever, a David Sedaris short story has been turned into a
movie. Said movie, “C.O.G.,” opens in select theaters today and is currently available to watch on VOD. In the video interview below, theater and TV star Jonathan Groff (“Glee”) tells us what it was
like to make the leap to movies.
“C.O.G.” is based on one of Sedaris’ autobiographical short
stories included in his 1997 anthology, “Naked,” and carries a quirkier
tone than the 1999 John Irving adaptation. Indiewire Chief Film Critic
Eric Kohn said the film “is like a collage of Americana from the perspective of someone incapable of comprehending its value,” when he reviewed it at Sundance in January.
