Not Coming to a Theater Near You

Don't expect us to congratulate you for doing a great job of making something unbearable.

Resolutely indelicate, often absurd, and really, really funny.

Audience Reviews for Yeast

"A maddeningly oblivious, tyrannical and emotionally stunted young woman tries her best to negotiate two toxic friendships. With a physical aggressiveness and emotional violence that is surprisingly, yet undeniably, feminine in nature, Yeast explores the grinding mechanics of friendships that have run their course. A recent dispatch from the nascent 'mumblecore' school of indie filmmaking, Yeast marks the filmmaking debut of Mary Bronstein." This movie chronicles a bitter falling out between friends. It's sometimes painful to watch as a young woman looses her two good friends on account of what seems to be her bossy personality. But it's hard not to feel for her too. This is a great character study that definitely urges you to look beyond the surface. Yeast shows us that it's just as easy to love the ones who are closest to you as it is to hate them. Ultimately, it's worth checking out.
