What if the person you always thought was a loser suddenly dies and you discover they had a rich life after all? That’s the premise of Anthony Edwards’ film “My Dead Boyfriend,” the story of a woman who embarks on an eccentric journey after coming home to find her boyfriend has died.
Based on Arthur Nersessian’s 2000 novel “dogrun,” the film film follows Mary (Heather Graham), who desperately tries to get rid of her dead boyfriend’s ashes and finds herself in numerous misadventures, like playing bass in a rock band, befriending a dog, and meeting up with ex-lovers. Along the way, she realizes she’s more than her string of temp jobs and discovers there’s much more to her couch potato boyfriend. The film co-stars Katherine Moennig (“The L Word”), John Corbett (“Northern Exposure”), Gina Gershon (“Face/Off”), Scott Michael Foster (“Greek”), Griffin Dunne (“After Hours”) and more.
