As you may already know, Drafthouse Films is releasing Mikkel Nørgaard’s comedy Klown in select theatres this weekend. Even if you don’t have an Alamo Drafthouse near you, however, you can still watch it online, right here on Film Junk! Drafthouse is releasing the film using an ecommerce platform called Distrify that allows you to watch it on demand on your PC (not unlike iTunes or Netflix), but the best part is that if you purchase it here, Film Junk will also get a cut! Here’s the plot synopsis:
“In what critics are hailing as “the funniest movie of the year!” (IFC), KLOWN follows two wildly inappropriate friends — played by celebrated international comedians Frank Hvam and Casper Christensen — as they run amok through the Danish countryside, plowing through endless awkward confrontations and unspeakable debaucheries. Hopelessly wrongheaded Frank “kidnaps” the 12-year-old nephew of his pregnant girlfriend in an eager attempt to prove his fatherhood potential, and they join sex-crazed Casper on his secret adulterous weekend canoe trip. Rampaging through exclusive brothels, hospitalizations, armed robberies and even prison, the three paddle downstream from one chaotic misadventure to the next, all culminating in a surprisingly sentimental portrait of friendship and a final shocking reveal that you’ll never be able to unsee.”
