Filmmaker Lisa Mikitarian is Spent in Dark Comedy’s Trailer, Poster and Stills

A seemingly miraculous recovery can ultimately prove to leave negative consequences on some families. The surprising, and not entirely desired, rehabilitation of a family man is wreaking havoc on his relatives in the new dark comedy, ‘Spent.’ In honor of the film’s upcoming limited theatrical and On Demand release on December 15, its studio, Indie Rights, has unveiled its official trailer, poster and stills.

The movie marks the feature film writing and directorial debuts of Lisa Mikitarian. ‘Spent’ stars Sally Anderson, Darren Barzegar, Erin Harth, Sonya Kalian, Connie Lamothe, Janna Livingston, Nataly Martin, Joe Mayes, Nathan McDonald, Madeline Mikitarian, Nick Nerangis, Hannah Overholtzer, Anna Grace Padgett and Tony Villa.

‘Spent,’ which was named Best Comedy at the American Filmatic Arts Awards, tells a tale of greed and love. In a homage to ’40s dark comedy, the movie follows a wife and son who celebrate life, while their miserable husband-father lies in a hospital bed. His death by brain tumor is believed to be imminent. It’s all fun and games for his relatives, until he experiences a miraculous 4th of July recovery.
