A Million In The Morning
DIRECTED BY JASON GOLDWATCH
Shades of Hands on a Hard Body and They Shoot Horses, Don’t They?! Watch eight competitors attempt to break the Guinness Record for continuous movie watching and win ten thousand dollars and a lifetime membership to Netflix. All they need to do is stay awake for six days—in a glass house—in the middle of Times Square. Watch as the need for sleep becomes too powerful for some to resist. Who will have the physical and mental strength to endure 123 hours of movies? Will it be the competitive eater from New York or the Sri Lankan with numerous endurance titles under his belt? A MILLION IN THE MORNING turns edgy and mind numbingly funny as the host for the competition, Gavin McInnes (star of FFF 2009’s brilliantly hilarious Asshole), goes without sleep for the six days also. The cameras follow a delirious McInnes through the streets of New York City, as he steals the spotlight away from the Netflix sponsored competition and puts it on himself.
