Sometimes there are issues to “workout” in a relationship. Recently divorced, newly rich, and utterly miserable, Danny (Kevin Corrigan, Big Fan) would seem to be the perfect test subject for a definitive look at the relationship between money and happiness. Danny’s well-funded ennui is interrupted by a momentous trip to the local gym, where he meets self-styled guru/owner Trevor (Guy Pearce) and irresistibly acerbic trainer Kat (Cobie Smulders, Avengers: Age of Ultron). Soon, their three lives are inextricably knotted, both professionally and personally.
After its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Results comes to Canada from Video Services Corp. (VSC) – opening theatrically in Toronto at the Carlton Cinema and on cable Video on Demand and iTunes May 29.
Writer/director Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess, 2013) returns with a fun, intimate fable that’s utterly grounded in real life. As wrinkles turn into complications, then blow up into full-fledged issues, the talented ensemble keeps the pensive tone light and the complex plot breezy. The end result is a charming shaggy-dog tale that’s been hitting the gym: taut, limber, and powerful.
Results also stars Brooklyn Decker (Battleship), Anthony Michael Hall (“The Dead Zone”), Constance Zimmer (“Entourage”) and Giovanni Ribisi (The Rum Diary).
“These two men (Pearce and Corrigan), besides great talent and a certain fascinating inscrutability, had little apparent in common—the square-jawed, very private Australian and the laconic Bronx indie guy—and so their images began to mingle in my head, chocolate and peanut butter,” explains Bujalski, “and I laughed to consider them ever sharing the same universe. What would that universe be?” The Results speak for themselves.
