Twenty-something Ben (a perfectly pitched Jackson Tozer) seems to be just drifting through life. He spends his days hanging out with his friends and driving an Uber, and his nights performing stand-up comedy at clubs across the city. His daily life and haphazard dating routines informs his comedy, but he begins to wonder if there is more to life.
A deft combination of comedy and drama, Lazybones examines those moments in life where decisions are not made and where possibilities that should be taken seem to drift-by. With a naturalistic-style, that matches the subject, the film follows those who are neither career-bound nor selfie-obsessed but just somehow get by.
“Lazybones is an accurate portrayal of modern life for a large portion of Australian 20-somethings. It’s a highly enjoyable watch and one of the finest examples of low-budget, independent filmmaking we’ve seen in years.” – CinemaAustralia.com.au
“Australia’s own addition to the modern stand-up comedian lifestyle film is not always happy but manages to stay funny.” FilmInk
