The coming-of-age tale centers on Titty (“The Riot Club” star Olly Alexander), a socially awkward and unusual young man whose apparent wealth has come from suing his own father for stealing Titty’s inheritance from his grandfather. While Titty strikes a newfound friendship with Gene (Kentucker Audley), he also begins a budding romance with a seemingly distant and withdrawn animal rights activist named Ginger (Joslyn Jensen). The whimsical narrative promises to be a witty look at the nature of young adult relationships as it examines Titty’s romantic struggles as his interest in Ginger grows.
“Funny Bunny” will screen June 5-6 at the Brooklyn Film Festival. It premiered at the SXSW Film Festival earlier this year.
