Sarah Paulson (Martha Marcy May Marlene) and Wes Bentley (American Beauty, The Hunger Games) have an awkward encounter at an indoor playground in this cringe-inducer, written by master misanthrope Neil LaBute (“Sexting,” FFF 2011).
Jacob Chase’s (“After-School Special”) first feature film The Four-Faced Liar premiered at the Slamdance Film Festival and went on to win the HBO Audience Award for Best First Feature at Outfest 2010. His short films have screened at festivals around the world. “After-School Special” marks his first collaboration with Neil LaBute.
