Katrina (Carrie Brownstein) – As (we’re assuming) Eli’s love interest, the Sleater-Kinney guitarist plays the classic, awkward animal shelter girl who watches abundant amounts of reality TV and makes video diaries.
Otis (David Wodehouse) – The unrecognized, eccentric filmmaker/inventor. Oddly, the main actors (including Renee Roman Nose below) are all comedians. We’re including Mercer, too. The irony of him actually starring in a film of melancholy, Garden State caliber is just too much.
Camille (Renee Roman Nose) – She is the analogy for the film. Match this: “…a socially handicapped thrift store attendant who spends her days sorting through the donated discards of other people’s lives” with that: “[the film] is a sad valentine to the forgotten discards of a throwaway society, and a story about knowing when to hold on, and when to let go.”
What are your thoughts? Does our Shins man seem like he can act? Does the movie, for one reason or another, remind you of Me, You, and Everyone We Know?
