Movie Info

The Color Wheel is the story of JR, an increasingly transient aspiring news-anchor, as she forces her disappointing younger brother Colin to embark on a road trip to move her belongings out of her professor-turned-lover's apartment. Problem is, these grown up kids do not get along, and are both too obnoxious to know better. Chaos and calamity are not far behind her beat up Honda Accord. Too bad that nobody else in the world can stand either of them. Not Colin's neglectful girlfriend, nor JR's former high school friends, nor strangers they clash with at pretty much every step of their hopeless and increasingly infuriating voyage of frustration, failure and jerks. It can only be a matter of time before JR and Colin arrive at the strangest and most unsettling of resolutions and put to rest their decades of animosity, half-baked sibling rivalry and endless bickering. -- (C) Official Site

"The Color Wheel" partially recalls the scathing audacity of "The Graduate" some 45 years ago.

You might not "like" Perry's movie, but it's hard to deny the forensically assured sensibility at work.

Hard to swallow but impossible to ignore.

Top Critic

Perry and co-writer/star Carlen Altman are Colin and J.R., the most loathsomely lovable brother-sister duo in the history of cinema.

The most entertaining unpleasant film I've seen in years.

A deceptively shambling, post-mumblecore road trip through dark comic territory.
