Premiering at this year's Sundance Film Festival, "C.O.G." tells the story of a recent Yale graduate who deviates from his parents' plan for him and ventures to an Oregon apple farm to pick fruit. "The Cider House Rules," this is not. "C.O.G." is based on one of David 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.
