Adam Brown: Stanleyville

Date - 16 July, 2019, All News Film

Adam Brown stars as Manny in Stanleyville for Amazon Studios.

Written by McCabe-Lokos and Rob Benvie, Stanleyville is a satirical feature comedy that follows six disparate characters with nothing to lose as they face off in a bizarre competition for a slightly used habanero-orange compact sport utility vehicle.

The story follows Maria Barbizan (Wuest) who has walked away from her life – her job, her money, her feckless husband and vile teenaged daughter – her entire identity. While loitering in a shopping mall, she is approached by a strange man, Homunculus (Richings), to participate in an even stranger contest. She accepts, immersing herself in the competition with her fellow contestants: Andrew Frisbee Jr. (Serritiello), self-styled alpha male and aspiring capitalist; Bofill Pancreas (Tchortov), amiable bodybuilder and salesperson for the Xircolite Nutrition System; Manny Jumpcannon (Brown), a seedy, failed actor, brimming with wired energy; and Felicie Arkady (Ricketts), sullen, mysterious and focused on destroying her competitors. Only one of them will win, but by the end of the contest, the prize of a compact SUV seems like cold comfort for a lost soul.
