G-SALE

The award-winning independent comedy

SYNOPSIS

Bogwood, Washington is a pleasant suburban community with a special distinction–it has more garages per capita than any other town in America. Not surprisingly, Bogwood is also the “Garage Sale Capital of the U.S.A.”

When retirees Doris & Clayton Fenwick decide to empty their nest of retro-modern antiques, they set the wheels in motion for a frantically funny “g-sale” involving Bogwood’s most avid garage sale junkies: Angela Cocci (an obsessive market researcher), Ed LaSalle (a beleaguered computer programmer and creator of the cult fantasy roleplaying game “Caves & Beasts”), Dick Nickerson (a retired star of the 60s sitcom Pot o’ Gold), and BJ Harwood & Helen Ziegler (partners and owners of a trendy retro-modern antique store).

REVIEWS

“Who ever thought a film about garage sales would be funny? Following a group of garage sale junkies converging on a plush ‘g-sale,’ the film is a mockumentary that is so clever it would make Christopher Guest take notice.” —indieWIRE

“This quirky mockumentary follows five thrift-store habitues squabbling over an antique board game.” —Entertainment Weekly

“Comedy in the ‘burbs! A gleeful mockumentary about the garage-sale culture of fictitious Bogwood, Wash., made in the style of Christopher Guest’s films.” —Seattle Times

“In an era when vintage, consignment, and thrift shops are the trend du jour, Randy Nargi’s offbeat mockumentary offers an entertaining look at the subculture where one person’s junk is another ’s treasure.” —Sarasota Herald-Tribune

“G-SALE embarks on its mission with such persuasive, PBS-documentary artlessness, it’s a shame to tip you off beforehand that the movie isn’t a documentary at all. Like a spinoff of “Antiques Roadshow,” the film leads us gently up a cozy American byway into the world of garage sales and the habitues who live for, in and by them… Deftly as the cast embodies its specific and collective daftness, the film was written, very smartly, by Randy Nargi, who also directed.” —Richard T. Jameson, former editor Film Comment
