Women Over the Influence

Greener Grass

Opens Jul 17, 2020





In a day-glo-colored, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-straight teeth, everyone drives golf carts, and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill (Jocelyn DeBoer) and Lisa (Dawn Luebbe) are locked in a passive aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn into the sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill's life — starting with her newborn daughter. Meanwhile, a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose, Jill's husband (Beck Bennett) has developed a curious taste for pool water, and Lisa is pregnant with a soccer ball. That's just the tip of the gloriously weird iceberg that is the feature debut from writers-directors Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe, a hilariously demented, Stepford Wives-on-acid satire destined to be an instant cult classic.

"It's like Wes Anderson taking on a 'Black Mirror' installment, or the David Lynch of 'Wild at Heart' suddenly directing an episode of 'Desperate Housewives.'"

"'Greener Grass' is a movie that's not only immediately destined for cult status — it's the rare movie that truly earns it."
-Los Angeles Times

"It's gloriously nonsensical — and yet, it reverberates with eerie truth."
