Movie Info

Ken Cooper was a successful comedian in the 1990's, but his single-guy jokes are irrelevant twenty years later. Now he's an anxiety ridden, stay-at-home dad, clinging to a TV show dream that his breadwinner wife doesn't believe in. Tonight could be a big break for Ken - a final shot at selling his pitch. But after an epic fight with his wife, Ken is no longer welcome home. Their clash alters everything - on stage and off. Ken is crushed, with nowhere to turn, until he meets Holly; a bright, charismatic comedienne, who lures him out of his shell and into her bizarre world. Their very real connection leads to a somewhat surreal, unforgettable and possibly unforgivable night.

  • Before the Sun Explodes is difficult to watch, but if you can stomach it, you'll be rewarded with a compelling case study of people who live their lives, teetering on the verge of a complete breakdown.

  • It's a tricky, complicated movie, and Dawes and Butler generate a great, weird chemistry.

  • It does display a sharp eye for the rootless edges of the L.A. showbiz world, where everyone is some variety of creepy weirdo.
