THE LAST TIME YOU HAD FUN and MEET THE PATELS Are Must-Sees at LAFF

Mo Perkins' The Last Time You Had Fun and Geeta & Ravi Patels' Meet the Patels are among IndieWire's must sees at the Los Angeles Film Festival this year.  

The Last Time You Had Fun features an all star comedy cast including Demetri Martin (Taking Woodstock, In A World...), Mary Elizabeth Ellis ("It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"), Eliza Coupe ("Happy Endings"), and Kyle Bornheimer (Bachelorette), and Charlene Yi (Knocked Up, Paper Heart). When Clark and Will meet Alison and Ida in a wine bar, the foursome set out for an all-night adventure to have the most fun that four decidedly dysfunctional adults are capable of having.

Meet The Patels was this year's runner up for the Audience Award at Hot Docs.  Freaked out that he’s almost 30 and single, Ravi Patel goes on a family vacation to India with his head and heart spinning. Ravi is desperate to find love and is willing to do whatever it takes. He enlists the help of his legendary matchmaker mother, his life-advice-spouting father, and can’t seem to shake his documentarian sister who follows him around, inserting unhelpful commentary at every whim.  Over the course of a year, Ravi’s parents send him on a whirlwind of dates, a chain of weddings, online matrimonial websites, and the “Patel Matrimonial Convention”. But there is a twist to this story and the only thing in the way of Ravi finding love: is his family... and a little secret.
