CHEATIN’

DIRECTOR: Bill Plympton - UNITED STATES

An adult tale of love, jealousy, revenge, and murder—infused with Plympton’s surreal sense of humor—Cheatin’ takes its inspiration from the work of such James M. Cain noir classics as Double Indemnity and The Postman Always Rings Twice. In a fateful bumper car collision, Jake and Ella meet and become the most loving couple in the long history of romance. But when a scheming “other” woman drives a wedge of jealousy into their perfect courtship, insecurity and hatred spell out an untimely fate. With only the help of a disgraced magician and his forbidden “soul machine,” Ella takes the form of Jake’s numerous lovers, fighting malfunction and deceit to reclaim their destiny. Plympton’s seventh animated feature is his first done in a hand-painted style, with over 40,000 drawings colored by a studio team of just 10 people. (76 mins.)

Director Bill Plympton in attendance 2/12.

Filmography: The Tune (92), I Married a Strange Person! (97), Mondo Plympton (99), Mutant Aliens (01), Hair High (04), Idiots and Angels (08).

Recommended for adult audiences only.
