SHORT: LIZA ANONYMOUS (TRIBECA)
A mix of offbeat humor and with a twinge of cringe, Liza Anonymous is a laugh-out-loud tale about the common desire to feel a part of something.
Liza (Danielle Beckmann) just wants to fit in, so she hits up various different addiction support groups in order to do so, disguising herself as a different persona in each. This short film will have you smiling from the very first frames, both because of the absurd premise and Beckmann’s hilarious delivery each line. Add in the guy that figures out what she is doing and tries to out her (Daniel Fox) and you have a non-stop laugh factory of witty banter and snappy comebacks.
In the end, Liza Anonymous is silly, but relatable. Don’t we all just want to find our place?
