After getting fired from his job, Larry, with the help of his friend (played by Tunde Adebimpe of TV on the Radio), nagging from his grandmother (Olympia Dukakis) and love for alcohol, attempts to find a stable job. He ends up as a Quick Lube technician and finds himself falling for his boss (Eleanore Pienta). Bob Byington’s “7 Chinese Brothers” promises both an assessment of the slacker lifestyle and a hopeful critique of it; despite what looks like a bleak situation, Larry consistently cracks jokes and makes light of his circumstances. Schwartzman’s adorable real-life dog, Arrow, co-stars.
Watch the trailer above. “7 Chinese Brothers” comes out in theaters on August 28.
