*NYC Theatrical Premiere, One Week Only!*
"An enormously likable peculiarity... Gliding on peaceful ocean vistas and plaintive indie ballads, whimsical conversations and tinkling French ditties, ETIENNE! encourages us to brake for sunsets and smell the daisies."
- Jeannette Catsoulis, THE NEW YORK TIMES
ETIENNE! is a gently offbeat comedy about appreciating, literally, the little things in life. Written and directed by Jeff Mizushima—one of Filmmaker Magazine's "25 New Faces of Independent Film" and winner of the CineVegas "Director to Watch" Award—this sweet-natured festival fave makes its New York theatrical run with a week-long engagement, September 3 - 9.
With not a pinch of irony in his impressive mustache, soft-spoken eccentric Richard (Richard Vallejos) discovers that his best and only friend—a dwarf hamster named Etienne—has been diagnosed with terminal cancer. Before saying farewell, Richard decides to show him the world on a wide-eyed bicycle trip up the California coast, along the way meeting a sympathetic pair of traveling musicians (indie rockers Great Northern), a pinhole camera enthusiast (I AM A SEX ADDICT director and WAKING LIFE co-star Caveh Zahedi) and a fellow lonely soul named Elodie (Megan Harvey).
88 minutes. In English. Presented in Blu-ray. Unrated.

"Undeniably marching to the beat of its own drummer, ETIENNE! is an oddball charmer of a scrappy first feature."
- Michael Rechtshaffen, THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER
"Enormously likable! An affectionate, raggedy road movie that feels like a throwback to more innocent times."
- Justin Chang, VARIETY
