Ry Russo Young‘s Nobody Walks (Eccles on Sunday, 12:15 pm) is about a 23 year-old New York artist (Olivia Thirlby) crashing with a Silver Lake family (John Krasinski, Olivia Thirlby, Rosemarie DeWitt, Justin Kirk, India Ennenga) and stirring the sexual pot all around. The script is by Russo-Young and Lena Dunham (Tiny Furniture), which indicates a tone of middle-class lethargy.
I haven’t the first clue what the plot is, but it would be fascinating and daring if Thirlby’s character is more centered and powerful than anyone else, and winds up seducing all four family members. The template for this sort of thing is Pier Paolo Pasolini‘s Teorema (’68) in which Terrence Stamp, staying with a wealthy Milanese family, was the stirrer-upper. Stamp did everyone except the family dog. Teorema‘s theme had something to do with spiritual satori and/or transformation.
