Movie Info

Vermont-based independent filmmaker John O'Brien offers a witty look at a mild case of culture shock in this low-key comedy. Natalie (Natalie Picoe) and Richard (Richard Snee) are a couple who've decided to leave behind their hectic lives in Manhattan for the pleasures of life in a small town in Vermont. Moving into a beautifully restored old building that is a bit more luxurious than most of the other dwellings in town, Natalie and Richard are settling into their new home when they're visited by three local citizens -- George (George Lyford), Fred (Fred Tuttle), and Vida (Vida Martin) -- who are to inspect the house for the tax assessors office. While Natalie finds herself quite taken with her new neighbors, especially George, Richard finds it a bit disconcerting that nothing in the house is regarded as too private to be examined. As Natalie and George become good friends despite their differences, Richard becomes the focus of local gossip from folks who aren't sure what to make of the rich folks from the city who have arrived in their community. Nosey Parker was screened as part of the 2003 South by Southwest Film Festival.

A poignant, overly gentle tribute to a man and the upcountry ways he represented.

Top Critic

A sweet natured, uplifting experience whose faults are few and forgivable and whose pleasures come in all sizes.

Film Threat

On a revved-up, summer-movie buffet table of junk food and gourmet delights, Nosey Parker is a leisurely slice of homemade rhubarb pie.

Rochester Democrat and Chronicle

This charming low-key comedy never seems anything but authentic.

Audience Reviews for Nosey Parker

This is a great feel good (and a little sad) movie. Note that Fred Tuttle is in this, but not the star. The stars are George Lyford and Natalie Picoe.
