My Effortless Brilliance | 2008
Successful novelist Eric Lambert Jones has been unceremoniously dumped by his life long buddy Dylan. In an attempt to piece together the fractured friendship, Eric takes a detour from his latest book tour to drop in on Dylan, newly settled in the backwoods of Washington state. Eric and Dylan gingerly navigate their way through the wreckage of their relationship but tension rises to the surface with the addition of Dylan's enigmatic new friend, Jim. An awkward weekend ensues as the three men chop wood, match wits and ultimately embark on an impromptu, booze-soaked cougar hunt.
