The Intervention

Opening Night Gala

(USA, 2016, 90 min)

Directed By: Clea DuVall

Clea DuVall makes an assured directorial debut with THE INTERVENTION, a relationship comedy featuring a sharp-witted ensemble of thirty-something couples on a beautiful lakefront vacation — with a hidden agenda. When the weekend’s plot to intervene in Ruby’s (Cobie Smulders) relationship goes awry, tension among the group runs high and riotous comedy ensues. Secrets are revealed, and as everyone lets go of their public façades and acknowledges their emotional baggage, the hilarity builds. The expert comic timing of this astonishingly talented cast keeps you laughing, even as its sly observations make you wince in recognition.

Reunited once again, DuVall and Natasha Lyonne (ADDICTED TO FRESNO, BUT I’M A CHEERLEADER) shine as a couple facing temptation in the form of an alluring queer stranger (Alia Shawkat). The spirited group also includes neurotic instigator Annie (Melanie Lynskey), who orchestrates the intervention, Matt (Jason Ritter), her put-upon boyfriend, and free-spirited drifter Jack (Ben Schwartz). We’re thrilled to showcase acclaimed Outfest alum Clea Duvall in this award-winning, energetic Sundance favorite.
