Greener Grass

Presented by TOM’s Film Club

An odd and wonderfully upbeat absurdist take on the American dream from improv comedians turned independent filmmakers Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe, Greener Grass is a hilariously deadpan hell-scape of competitive suburbia with a boldly stylised absurdist chain of events that unfurls with increasing fervour.

In a dayglo-coloured, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-perfect teeth and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill (DeBoer) and Lisa (Luebbe) are locked in a passive aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn into the strange and sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill’s life, starting with her newborn daughter.

Meanwhile, a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose, Jill’s husband (Beck Bennett of SNL) has developed a curious taste for pool water, and Lisa is pregnant with a soccer ball. That’s just the tip of the gloriously weird iceberg in this hilariously demented, Stepford Wives-on-acid satire destined to become a cult classic.
