The Architect

WITH GUEST DIRECTOR JONATHAN PARKER

Run Time: 95 mins USA Language: English

Synopsis

Preparing to start a family, Drew (Parker Posey, Best in Show) and Colin (Eric McCormack, “Will & Grace”), set out to build their dream house. She likes historic homes, while he leans more toward new construction. When they finally settle on a property, a storm quickly destroys it. In order to rebuild, they enlist the help of a modernist architect (James Frain) with an unwavering vision of his own dream home. A comic tale of love, obsession and deceit, Jonathan Parker’s film is a droll journey into the perils of homebuilding.

Parker Posey is a complete delight as Drew as she struggles to gure out what exactly she wants in a home that would distinguish it from being just a house. Meanwhile, Eric McCormack brings a charming fastidiousness and efficiency to Colin that will please more than just fans of “Will & Grace.”
