Fresh off the bus in New York City, Margaret embarks on a career as a lesbian prostitute, servicing upper-class Manhattanites under the tutelage of Jo, a straight and streetwise grifter with a knack for picking up women. Madeleine Olnek’s raucous buddy comedy and Independent Spirit Award nominee (co-written with the two stars, Lisa Haas and Jackie Monahan) is an all-female riff on ‘My Own Private Idaho‘ by way of ‘Midnight Cowboy‘, filled with eccentric characters and clever cameos, including Girls’ Alex Karpovsky as a shady merkin salesman.
“Writer-director Madeleine Olnek (Codependent Lesbian Space Alien Seeks Same, 2011 Sundance Film Festival) melds her singular brand of comedy with the buddy film genre to pay homage to and riff on iconic male hustler films. A feature length film, The Foxy Merkins takes us on an outrageous urban adventure that is altogether uproarious, subversive, and poignant.” ~ *Sundance Institute’s Next Weekend Program Guide.
On Friday, June 27, BAMcinemaFest will present the NYC Premiere of ‘The Foxy Merkins‘ in the Peter Ray Sharp Building at the BAM Rose Cinemas.
