7 Chinese Brothers
Jason Schwartzman portrays Larry, an inebriated sad sack who rides a tide of booze onto the shores of an undiscriminating Quick-Lube. The only bright spot is probably his boss, Lupe. Will Larry keep it together long enough to win the girl, provide for his French bulldog (Schwartzman's real-life dog Arrow), laze about with his friend Major (Tunde Adebimpe of the Brooklyn based band TV on the Radio's), and do his cantankerous grandmother proud? 7 CHINESE BROTHERS is empathetic in tone, dry in humor. Schwartzman is in every scene and offers one of his most finely nuanced performances.
