Fantastic Fest 2009 Kicks Off with Jared Hess’ GENTLEMAN BRONCOS Starring Jemaine Clement

     July 13, 2009


I’m currently trying to find a way to attend this year’s Fantastic Fest (step 1: Mapquest directions from Altanta to Austin) as everyone who attends does nothing but rave about it and makes the rest of us feel like losers.  The way they’ll do this is through Twitter.  We’ll be reading their tweets and the first one will be “Everyone awesome and cool is here at Fantastic Fest! #fantasticfest09” and then it will be “OMG, just finished watching GENTLEMAN BRONCOS and it was amazing!  Anyone who isn’t here is a loser #ff09”.

While I currently try to find hotel and airfare to Austin for less than thirty bucks, hit the jump to get a brief synopsis of “Gentleman Broncos” and click here to purchase badges and tickets while you still can.

Benjamin (Michael Angarano), home-schooled by his eccentric mother (Jennifer Coolidge),  is a lovable loner whose passion for writing leads him on an offbeat and hilarious journey as his story first gets ripped off by the legendary fantasy novelist, Ronald Chevalier (Jemaine Clement) and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town’s most prolific homespun filmmaker.  Find out more at
