wayback wednesday: eagle vs. shark

Last night, K. and I watched the amusing New Zealand film Eagle vs. Shark, which I missed at the Philly film festival last year. It's a quirky, low-key comedy about childlike adults, somewhat reminiscent of Napoleon Dynamite, but with more heart and fewer catch phrases. The main character is Lily, a socially-awkward fast food employee with a big old crush on Jarod, a mullet-sporting electronics store geek played by Jermaine Clement from Flight of the Conchords. There are a few odd animated portions of the film and the soundtrack features lots of light, fluffy indie pop from Phoenix Foundation, M. Ward, and Devendra Banhart.
