5 Reasons why Addicted to Fresno may be one of your favourite indie movies this year


Addicted to Fresno - feature Judy Greer (Ant-Man, Jurassic World) and Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black) team up for this delightfully dark, indie comedy. The film gives Greer a chance to take a well-deserved shot at centre stage as she’s more than put her time in on the sidelines. The story follows two sisters, Shannon, a down on her luck sex addict (Greer) and Martha, an optimistic hotel maid (Lyonne). After Shannon loses her job due to her addiction and is forced into rehab, Martha convinces her to take a job at the hotel with her. Soon after, Shannon accidentally kills one of the guests and the sisters’ attempts to cover it up lead to what looks like many hilarious hijinks. Also, Lyonne’s love interest in the film is none other than Aubry Plaza (Parks and Recreation), who told Ain’t It Cool News that, “Basically, I did it because Natasha (Lyonne) asked me if I wanted to play her love interest, and I thought it’d be fun to make out with her. For real.” That does sound fun, for real. But if that’s not enough to convince you to check it out, please do peruse our list of five reasons why it just might end up being one of your favourite indie releases this year.
