Movie Info

Brian Shoaf's directorial debut "Aardvark" follows Josh (Quinto), a troubled man who has lived in the shadow of his brother for so long he starts seeing that shadow everywhere. After experiencing a series of hallucinations involving his brother Craig (Hamm)--an actor, and the star of a popular TV drama--Josh places himself in the care of Emily (Slate), a young therapist. Emily is forced to wade deeper and deeper into Josh's imaginary world, and along the way forms her own obsession with his famous brother. While Emily and Craig explore a potentially disastrous attraction, Josh begins a relationship with a young woman, Hannah, who might be his soul mate--if only he could be sure she exists.

  • "Aardvark" appears to be about coping with mental illness and the toll it takes on families, and another filmmaker might have had something of consequence to say about both.
