He’s an anxious, “mostly closeted” wannabe actor who’s wound a little too tight. She’s a directionless free spirit with a dry sense of humor and a drinking problem. Both are late bloomers with a fear of vulnerability. As the two oldest members in their traveling children’s theater troupe, Alan and Jesse are stuck driving across the Midwest together for the next ten months. Bouncing between cramped motel rooms, indifferent audiences, and endless snow-covered plains, they seem to be experts in getting on each other’s nerves. But over the course of the tour, the odd couple begins to break down each other’s defenses, leading to creative and emotional breakthroughs. Made on a micro-budget of less than $50K, debut director Nicole Rodenburg and her childhood friend Colin Froeber wrote and starred in this buddy road trip dramedy. With their sincere chemistry and ample heart, the pair makes GLOB LESSONS an offbeat celebration of platonic love and finding your path in life, even if you’ve had a hard time getting started. —D.O.
