Control freak bride-to-be Annie (U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award For Individual Performance Winner – Melanie Lynskey) gathers her group of thirty-something friends at summer home of sisters Jessie (writer/director Clea DuVall) and Ruby (Cobie Smulders) to convince Ruby and her workaholic husband, Peter (Vincent Piazza), that their relationship has turned irreparably toxic. Joined by Annie’s easygoing fiancé (Jason Ritter), Jessie’s partner – Sarah (Natasha Lyonne), as well as the reluctant Jack (Ben Schwartz) and his sprightly 22-year-old girlfriend (Alia Shawkat), the group makes fumbling attempts to jump-start the intervention throughout the booze-fueled weekend, while resolutely avoiding dealing with their own vices and regrets.
THE INTERVENTION was acquired by Paramount Pictures at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. The film was released in August 2016, written/directed by Clea Duvall and filmed in Savannah, GA. Sam Slater and Paul Bernon produced the film with Sev Ohanian. David Bernon executive produced alongside Mel Eslyn and Clea Duvall.
