November 4, 2019 0 By Jeff Fountain

One of the most inspiring films of the year “Such a Funny Life” is a “generational” underdog story about a man who is determined to become a comedian and entertainer- despite the odds. The film, which has received rave reviews this year, is the brainchild of tyro filmmaker Oliver Mann and features a strong ensemble cast headed up by Gonzalo Trigueros (TV’s “Instinct”).

The film, distributed by Artist Rights Distribution, hits L.A theaters this week. The Arena Cinelounge in Hollywood will screen the film from Friday, November 8. You can get tickets here.

The movie features more than a few familiar faces, including Kobi Frumer from “The Punisher”, Jesse Ray Sheps from “Bull”, and Neil Hellegers of “Team Toon”.

Here’s the official synopsis:

David Gutierrez is an up and coming New York stand up comic who is funny on stage, but offstage he struggles with two devils: the death of his sister Gabriella, his Autistic mother Mariah in a mental institution and the disappearance of his abusive father Ralph that connects David with his street smart friend Rob Parker. As things worsen for Maria in the mental institution and betrayal comes between David and Rob, David flees to Los Angeles to hone his craft and leave it all behind until years later he gets a life-changing phone call to retrieve Mariah from the mental institution in New York until his dark past catches up with him. There’s always a price for talent.
