Naomi and Madeline are best friends and business partners. Opening a restaurant, and contributing to the gentrification of their Chicago neighborhood, they decide to run a food drive to win the hearts of the locals. But Naomi and Madeline, and their friends, are painfully divorced from the real world, and as the movie progresses it’s clear that the road to hell isn’t paved with good intentions, it’s paved with the witless desires of egomaniac restaurateurs and their interns.

Delivered with an absurd and black sense of humour Neighborhood Food Drive offers a terrifying glimpse into the abyss of contemporary self-indulgence. Watching it, you enter a world populated with self-congratulatory entitlement, psychological dysfunction, and the relentlessness of the modern middle class. The power of both Jerzy Rose’s direction, and the excellent cast (including Lyra Hill and Bruce Bundy), is that, however unpleasant everyone is, you simply can’t look away as events slowly unfold.

It’s a refreshing change of pace from mainstream comedies and their mandatory gooey, feel-good moments.” Screen Anarchy

Frankly, it’s a pretty damn awesome movie” Boston Hassle
