From New Zealand comes a wickedly offbeat love story - a funny, fractured romance between two total misfits, woven into an all-consuming quest for revenge, and shot through with the strange, sweet hilarity of the human condition. A smash hit at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival and winner of Best Screenplay at the HBO Comedy Festival, Eagle Vs. Shark introduces the original and delightfully different vision of writer-director Taika Waititi, a young Kiwi comic star, who won an Academy Award® nomination for his short film "Two Cars, One Night."
It all begins with Lily (Loren Horsley), a lonely oddball and fast-food waitress who happens to be a hopeless romantic. Then there's Jarrod (Jemaine Clement), the man of Lily's dreams, another lonely oddball and video game clerk, who has spent the last decade plotting ultimate vengeance on a bully from his high school past.
When these two connect at a "dress as your favorite animal" party, she's an anemic Shark and he's a fluffy-headed Eagle. It's a match that seems made in outcast heaven, but when Lily decides to risk everything for love, her hopes are nearly dashed. After a brief fling, Jarrod dumps Lily because he's too busy "training" for his all-important payback mission. But neither of them can anticipate just what kind of grit the steadfastly optimistic Lily will show in her heartbreak. As Jarrod's day of reckoning arrives, and everything hits the fan, Jarrod and Lily will find something that goes beyond romantic fantasies and revenge -- faith in who they are.
Eagle Vs. Shark hits theaters in New York and Los Angeles on June 15 from Miramax Films. It goes into wider release June 19.
