Wild Canaries , movie

Plot Summary:
Madcap murder mystery meets razor-sharp relationship comedy in this witty twist on the detective movie—think Nancy Drew run amok in present-day Brooklyn. Husband and wife filmmaking team Sophia Takal and director Lawrence Michael Levine (Gabi on the Roof in July) star as recently engaged but perpetually bickering couple Barri and Noah. When their elderly downstairs neighbor suddenly kicks the bucket, the flighty Barri immediately suspects foul play. Cue a hilariously harebrained investigation as Barri—outfitted in a Columbo­-style trench coat—enlists her secretly-in-love-with-her lesbian roommate (Arrested Development’s Alia Shawkat) to help her get to the bottom of the matter. Parenthood’s Jason Ritter co-stars in this screwball whodunit, which crackles with zingy one-liners, a brassy retro score, and real romantic tension.
