EVERYTHING'S GONE GREEN (2006) [feature]

Canada (MIFF 2007 , Jaguar International Panorama)
Director: Paul Fox

Author Douglas Coupland (Generation X) makes a foray into film as the screenwriter of Everything's Gone Green, a quirky tale about a slacker caught in a late-20s wasteland. When Ryan (Paulo Costanzo) is dumped by his girlfriend and fired from his office job on the same day, he starts to re-evaluate his life. A chance meeting brings Ryan into contact with a film set-dresser named Ming who's unfortunately dating shady entrepreneur Bryce. When Bryce proposes a bizarre money-laundering scheme, Ryan is on the fast track to wealth. The lifestyle that everyone else seems to be enjoying is now within reach - but is it what he really wants? Reminiscent of Garden State in its exuberant eccentricity, Everything's Gone Green is a light, comical critique of our notions of corruption and success.
