'Support the Girls'

The man practically invented the genre (or at least set down the basic template) for what we once, in our youthful haze, called "mumblecore" – so of course writer-director Andrew Bujalski is making a movie about the employees of a popular "breastaurant." (You all saw this one coming, right? By which we mean no one saw this coming at all.) The filmmaker behind such lo-fi treasures as Funny Ha Ha and Computer Chess returns to SXSW for an Amerindie about the manager of a curves-fixated chain eatery called Double Whammies and her efforts to shield her staff from all sorts of shenanigans. Girls Trip's Regina Hall plays the boss; Columbus MVP Haley Lu Richardson and Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt's Dylan Gelula play two of her "girls" who, if the title is accurate, are in need of support. This one should be a hoot(ers).
