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.
