Dark Horse

Directed by Todd Solondz
United States, 2011
Comedy, Romance, Cult


Abe, a fat, mid-30-something lives with his parents and works for his dad. Uncool and socially inept, he alternates between politeness and rage. Abe invents a reciprocal romance with the beautiful, overmedicated depressive Miranda. In his self-delusion, he proposes marriage. Shockingly, she accepts.

Critics reviews

Dark Horse could be Solondz’s best picture in years. . . . [It’s] primarily about the perils of self-destructive behaviour, combined with misplaced “positive thinking.”
