Good Dick

November 2008

written and directed by Marianna Palka

Glasgow film-maker Palka stars in her own, off-beat LA-based comedy as a solitary, hostile young woman with a porn addiction. When the guy in her local video shop takes a fancy to her, he has to take rejection after blatant rejection. Yet he keeps pegging away to break down her barriers. 

Palka handles social isolation with a light touch and sense of fellowship. A very watchable, likeable, and unlikely feel-good movie.
