Area Premiere of 'Tiger Lily Road' Screens Dec. 5 at MONDO


SUMMIT, NJ - The Film Society of Summit will host the area premiere of "Tiger Lily Road" December 5 at MONDO.  The film is a dramatic comedy about the relationship dilemmas of best friends, Annie and Louise, who are about to step through the looking glass into middle-age.

Set in the wilds of small town New England, Annie and Louise share a secluded cottage with Annie’s semi-invalid mother.  Annie, a small town veterinarian, is also -- according to Louise -- a compulsive empathizer, a main factor in why Annie has such the high relationship casualty rate.  For her part, Louise hasn’t done any better.

After a demeaning encounter with Annie’s old boyfriend, Annie and Louise drink tequila and swear a blood oath to give up men for a year.  Later that night, as heavy snow begins to fall, a young man breaks into their house trying to escape the snowstorm and the law.  Then the phones and power go out.  Annie is convinced she can help him understand the forces that rule his life, but can she understand her own?

A film festival favorite, "Tiger Lily Road" won Best Comedy at the 2014 Woods Hole Film Festival, and Best Screenplay at the Cincinnati Film Festival.  Tonally, the film borrows from some of the Coen brothers work and, farther back, the plays of Joe Orton.

Written & directed by Michael Medeiros, the film stars Ilvi Dulack, Emmy winner, Tom Pelphrey, Karen Chamberlain, and New York theatre legend, Rita Gardner, and co-stars Golden Globe Nominee, Tom Nardini, Sarah Shaefer, Kevin Kane, Krista Amigone, Michael Medeiros (X-Men First Class) and William Hill (Gran Turino).

The program begins at 8 p.m. on MONDO's Third Floor, and a discussion with writer/director Medeiros will follow the screening.  Admission is $12 in advance, $14 at the door, with tickets available at, and at MONDO.  Seating is limited.
 MONDO is located at 426 Springfield Avenue.
