The Talent Given Us

Movie: The Talent Given Us
Director: Andrew Wagner
Produced by:
Released By: Daddy W Productions
MPAA Rating:

Fact and fiction begin to blur in this comedy drama in which a filmmaker casts his parents, his siblings, and himself in a story loosely adapted from their own lives and personalities. Judy and Allen Wagner are an elderly couple living in New York City who haven’t seen their son, Andrew, in some time. Deciding it’s time they paid him a visit, Judy and Allen pack up their van and head out to Los Angeles, where Andrew is trying to make a name for himself as a director and screenwriter. Along the way, Judy and Allen decide to bring their daughters, Maggie and Emily, and the camera plays “fly on the wall” as Judy and Allen openly ponder the successes and failings of their children while they work on crossword puzzles, stop for meals, engage in small talk, and deal with the presence of fellow traveler Bumby. The first feature from Andrew Wagner, The Talent Given Us was awarded the Grand Jury Prize at the 2004 CineVegas Film Festival.
