Watch: Drinking Buddies trailer
The majority of Joe Swanberg’s directorial career has been making micro-budget indie films such as Kissing on the Mouth, LOL, and Hannah Takes the Stairs, which many consider to be early pioneers of the mumblecore (yes, I said it) movement. It was just last year when Swanberg got a taste of more commercial work when he directed a segment in the horror anthology V/H/S. His latest film Drinking Buddies contains a cast of Anna Kendrick, Olivia Wilde, Jack Johnson and Ron Livinston, all of whom are much more well-known than what he has ever worked with in the past. With Swanberg at the helm and the film earning some solid buzz from it’s SXSW premiere, we should be in store for something more than just your average light romantic comedy.
