"Ass Backwards" screens at Sundance Film Festival

2013, 90 minutes, color, U.S.A.
Kate and Chloe have been best friends since childhood, when they both tied for dead last in their hometown beauty pageant. Now they are all grown up and living in New York City, where Chloe works as a “girl in a box” at a nightclub and Kate is a CEO…of her own one-woman egg-donor “corporation.” Their past humiliation remains long forgotten until they receive an invitation to the pageant’s milestone anniversary celebration. The unpleasant memories come flooding back, but Kate and Chloe decide to redeem themselves by winning the elusive crown.

Director Chris Nelson takes us on a raucous and wacky road trip that includes a rescued wild rabbit, a feminist wilderness commune, and amateur night at a strip club. Lead actresses June Diane Raphael and Casey Wilson have great laugh-out-loud chemistry, and their brand of stiletto-clad physical comedy brings an amusing and unique charm to the female version of the buddy movie.

About the Director --
Chris Nelson started his career directing commercials for clients that included HBO, Budweiser, Reebok, MTV, and ESPN. The HBO Voyeur Project that he codirected with Jake Scott won the 2008 Promotion Grand Prix award at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. He recently completed the feature Gay Dude for Lionsgate and Laurence Mark Productions. Nelson graduated from Brown University with honors in modern culture and media. Ass Backwards is his first feature film.
