Knights of Badassdom

In 2008, the third act of the guy comedy Role Models used LARPing — live-action role-playing, that is — as a backdrop for our protagonists' lessons learned. Today, Knights of Badassdom extends that half-hour into a full feature, to the point where viewers are left not smiling, but exhausted.

s "Sex and the City" without the frilly cocktails.


At its center is a complex and moving performance by Parker Posey, a darling of indie cinema perhaps best known for her work in Christopher Guest's mockumentaries. Here, she is Nora Wilder, a 30something New Yorker desperate to be loved, yet unable to find a decent guy. She finally catches a break when she meets Julien (Melvil Poupaud), a handsome Frenchman whose only flaw seems to be that he's heading back to Paris in a few days.
