Ben’s at Home is a quirky comedy about a 30-year-old guy who has made the unusual decision never to leave the house after a bad break-up. Thanks to the power of the internet, has finds that abiding by this decision is easier than he thought.
The film is the first feature of award award-winning Canadian director Mars Horodyski. An alumna of the Canadian Film Centre’s Director’s Lab, she also co-wrote and produced the film. Lead actor, Producer and co-writer Dan Abramovici is a founding member of Awkward Silence sketch comedy troupe. The film has screened and won awards in several festivals around the world and is now streaming on Netflix Canada.
Ben’s character reminds me of “Physical Phil” from October Road (2007-2008), one of my favourite TV series of all time. Mars’ debut feature film is one I really enjoyed and is just the kind of film I would like to make in the future. Check it out.
