Story


Abe is a 30-something who lives with his parents, works for his father, and collects toys. When he isn't playing backgammon with his mother, he's trying to romance Miranda, a 30-something who has moved back in with her parents after her literary/academic career crashed. Out of desperation, Miranda reluctantly agrees to marry Abe, and the two begin to plan their life together. But, just when it looks like things are starting to go right for Abe, everything goes horribly wrong.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..we lose the fascination he holds for Solondz and the film becomes rather aimless..”
by David Noh [Film Journal International]
“..Dark Horse is neither incisively black-comic nor particularly attuned to human behavior-proof that some directors, at least, do end up the way they started out..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
“..Abe's day-to-day trials may eventually seem like cheap daytime TV, but Gelber and Solondz know how to nail the uncomfortably funny optimism shadowing American desperation..”
by Joe Neumaier [New York Daily News]
