Written and directed by Michael and Thomas Matthews, the film includes original score by James Iha and was included in the 2019 Slamdance Film Festival, as well as 2019’s Rotterdam International Film Festival.”
Screen Anarchy said the film “Brims with energy and shenanigans (while) beautifully combining boozy comedy with character and crime,”
Film Inquiry called Lost Holiday“An utterly delightful, lively DIY crime caper that captures the reluctance of accepting adulthood,”
“Although it’s rooted in comedy, Lost Holidayis reminder to everyone that one wrong move or bad decision can leave you wishing it was all a bad dream,” said Brian Volk-Weiss, CEO of Comedy Dynamics.
The deal was negotiated by Anna Roberts of Comedy Dynamics and Ryan Kampe of Visit Films.
