(Toronto) Everything’s gone green is the first story that renowned author Douglas Coupland (Generation X, JPod) wrote specifically for the screen. Directed by Paul Fox (CFC Feature Film Project ’04), produced by Elizabeth Yake (CFC Feature Film Project ’05) and edited by Gareth Scales (CFC Film Program – Editors’ Lab ’03), EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN is about a slacker tempted into a money-laundering scheme who struggles with his ill-gotten gains while trying to find happiness. Paulo Costanzo (ROAD TRIP, 40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS) heads up the cast.
EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN opens in Toronto Friday, April 27th. Look for it to open in more Canadian cities starting in May.
Winner of the Vancouver International Film Festival’s “CityTV Western Canada Feature Film Award,” and of the Edmonton International Film Festival’s “City TV Canadian Feature Film Award,” the film is produced by Radke Films and True West Films, and is partly financed by Telefilm Canada and the Harold Greenberg FundPaulo Costanzo (40 DAYS AND 40 NIGHTS, ROAD TRIP, JOEY) stars as Ryan, a twentysomething uberslacker who is nonetheless willing to fall into accidental success. After losing his job the same day he is dumped by his yuppie girlfriend, Ryan gets a dispiriting job with a tacky lottery magazine, photographing winners and writing their stories.
“EVERYTHING’S GONE GREEN” comically illustrates how hard it is to know what’s real in a world filled with fabrication and hidden agendas. This film marks the first screenplay written by the acclaimed author Douglas Coupland ("Generation X").
