AroView: A barbed black comedy about social anxiety centred around a 31-year-old social worker (co-writer Tom Stourton) who meets up with an old college gang who are throwing him a birthday party at a lavish country mansion.
During what’s meant to be a joyful weekend reunion, he finds himself increasingly unnerved by his friends’ inside jokes and snarky comments. As the atmosphere goes from awkward to terrifying to downright surreal, Pete is pushed to the breaking point. Is he being paranoid or is he the butt of some elaborate joke?
“The result is as funny as it’s excruciating and alienating as it’s relatable.” ~Jared Mobarak, The Film Stage
“Inspired by a rush of paranoia that Stourton once experienced at a wedding where he felt unwelcome, All My Friends Hate Me effectively splits the difference between Ruben Östlund and Ben Wheatley as it pinballs between squirmy laughs and sly horrors.” ~David Ehrlich, IndieWire
