A woman invites an old acquaintance to live with her after a devastating loss. Director Doron Max Hagay, fresh off his induction into the NoBudge Hall of Fame, is in Hall of Fame form with “Company,” his latest collaboration with Blair Beeken and Katy Fullan. In it, Dana, an L.A. woman reeling from the mysterious disappearance of her husband, offers a home-cooked meal to Liz after finding her sleeping in her car and discovering they’ve previously met at Color Me Mine. Dinner turns into an overnight stay, and the situation turns awkward as Dana reveals herself to be a self-absorbed mess. Filling the scenario with absurd story reveals, and priceless exchanges about Liz’s Honda Civic (“I’m my own woman. I have a Civic”), the film is a perfect vehicle for Beeken and Fullan, who continue to harness their oddly compelling chemistry and singular comic timing, see also: “She Keeps Me Young,” and “Rodney”. Beeken also recently directed, “Hannah: A Model.”
