    New Directors/New Films 45: Film #2

    Donald Cried? More like James Cried, from laughing. Funniest film I've seen in a theater since last year's Entertainment which also played ND/NF. Donald Cried actually reminds me of Entertainment a bit, as well as The Color Wheel. On par with both, possibly better. Saw much raw talent on display here from everyone, but especially from Director/Writer/Actor Kris Averdisian who gives my favorite performance of the year next to Krisha Fairchild from Krisha. Best to go into this blind because you'll be completely surprised with how fantastic this is. Crossing my fingers it plays at Cannes so I can see it again there with friends.

    That Face/Off reference is too good

  • ★★★★ review by Pat Healy on Letterboxd

    This movie was a wonderful surprise. Really hilarious, original and human. Do your best to catch it in a theatre with an audience. It's funny as hell. Limited release 3/3/17.

    Maybe you need your own real life Donald to appreciate a film like this. Maybe you to need to avoid the people you grew up with like the plauge for whatever reason. I don't know what you need to enjoy a movie like Donald Cry, but I got it. Cathartic, Tragic, and hilarious, Donald Cried can take those memories of that one embarrassing friend, they you may have picked on one too many times and make them all come to life again.

    Friendly reminder that this is still the best Rhode Island film ever made. 

    And it's painstakingly accurate because I know about 10 different people who are going to end up exactly like Donald.
