In a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts, three underpaid employees mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35 millimeter film projectors in the state. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles, becoming more gripping than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. They are onto a scam, making extra money on tickets, but the new employee – who is African American – is less enthusiastic about breaking the law, as he knows he’ll be the first one accused. With keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye, The Flick is a hilarious and heart-rending cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world.
Hilarious and ineffably touching New York Times
This hypnotic, heartbreaking micro-epic is irreducibly theatrical Time Out
A riveting play The Guardian
