'Duck Butter'

An actor (co-writer Alia Shawkat) and a singer (Laia Costa) meet-cute at a bar. They hook up and hit it off; for their second date, they decide to spend 24 consecutive hours with each other, confessing all of their secrets and having sex every hour on the hour. (Why, yes, things do go a little off the rails before the time is up!) You could not have asked for a better director for this type of material than Miguel Arteta (Chuck & Buck, Beatriz at Dinner), who specializes in indies that traffic in intimacy, brutal honesty and first-rate uncomfortableness. And anyone who hoped that Costa, the Spanish star of the one-shot movie Victoria, was not a one-hit wonder will walk away from this very happy. Just don't ask what the title means. You do not want to know. DF
