  • Description
  • A laugh out loud send-up of life set in the alternative hotbed of Athens Georgia, SOMEBODIES is an outlandishly funny, edgy film. It is sure to be one of the most talked about films at the festival.

    SOMEBODIES takes a lighthearted comedic jab at what it is like to be young, carefree, and reckless in America today. Scottie, a 22-year-old African American college student and party boy, is living life as it comes. Surrounded by a wild group of friends, an eccentric love interest, off-the-wall family members, convicts, and a fire-and-brimstone preacher, Scottie's road to recovery ultimately becomes a hilarious journey of self-discovery.

    Sophisticated camera work along with fluid editing and direction keeps the tempo lively as the characters' hijinks continue to careen into one another. With exceptionally articulated script and standout performances - SOMEBODIES is an insightful!, unforgettable film.
