WATCH a Clip from SXSW Mumble-Noir 'Wild Canaries,' Starring Alia Shawkat and Jason Ritter

Here’s a new South by Southwest clip for you. In Lawrence Michael Levine’s “Wild Canaries,” Barri (Sophie Takal) and Noah (Levine), a newly engaged Brooklyn couple, are bummed about the death of their elderly downstairs neighbor, Sylvia. Barri suspects foul play and sets out to investigate, enlisting her roommate Jean (Alia Shawkat) to join her on a reconnaissance mission to trail a possible suspect. Watch an enticing scene below.

This film fell high on our Ten Most Anticipated Films at SXSW list. Lawrence Michael Levine is a promising talent — “Gabi on the Roof in July” (2010) was a perfectly zeitgeisty bit of urban aimlessness –and who doesn’t love Alia Shawkat, aka Maeby “Marry Me” Funke on “Arrested Development”?
