Writer-director Bob Byington returns to the Dallas International Film Festival with the follow-up to his 2009 hit HARMONY AND ME.
The film follows Max (Keith Paulson), his best friend Sal (Nick Offerman) and a woman they both adore, Lyla (Jess Weixler) through 35 years of mandatory but apparently unfulfilling entanglements at weddings, funerals, hospitals, eateries, divorce courts…and the tool shed.
SOMEBODY UP THERE LIKES ME is a beautiful commentary on the cycle of life, which it breaks down into humorous and, at times, heart-warming bite-size segments. Bob Byington reminds us that there’s magic and discovery around every corner in life.
Bob Byington is an award-winning independent American film director, screenwriter and actor living in Austin, Texas. He is most noted for his films RSO [REGISTERED SEX OFFENDER] and HARMONY AND ME, which the LA Times described as a "collision of joyous whimsy and bittersweet melancholy."
