Uncle Kent is a sexed-up, achingly true-to-life modern comedy about aging, loneliness, desire, and the awkward intimacies of online friendship.
Kent (Kent Osborne, Hannah Takes the Stairs) is an unmarried children's-show writer living alone with his cat in Los Angeles. He spends his days sketching gag cartoons and bouncing ideas off his hyperactive friend, Kev (Kevin Bewersdorf), a composer for the show. At night, Kent is a habitué of Internet chat rooms, staving off loneliness by drinking a beer, smoking a bowl, and dialoguing with remote strangers. One of his online acquaintances is pretty environmental journalist Kate (exciting newcomer Jennifer Prediger), who crashes at Kent's house for the weekend while she's in town for a conference.
Though they've only previously met online, Kent and Kate are instantly at ease with each other in person—shopping, talking, goofing off—and as their dynamic begins to mimic a romantic couple's, a palpable sexual tension grows alongside their chummy rapport. The only problem is, Kate has a boyfriend. Initially, Kent respects that boundary, even though he isn't above surreptitiously swiping some naked photos from her digital camera. Then, as an expression of solidarity in their unacknowledged sexual frustration, the flirtatious twosome arrange a three-way with online swinger Josephine (Josephine Decker), further confusing Kent—a middle-aged guy just beginning to sense the emptiness of his collegiate lifestyle—about their chaste friendship.
A sensual, funny, and mature look at modern romance and the meaning of connection in a wired world, Uncle Kent examines love and sex through the eyes of a boyish L.A. artist still ambivalent about commitment and adult responsibilities at age 40.
UNCLE KENT is the first film of Joe Swanberg's to be featured in the Sundance Film Festival and the follow-up to his acclaimed films ALEXANDER THE LAST, HANNAH TAKES THE STAIRS and LOL.
