New This Weekend: I Used to Be Funny and In A Violent Nature

🇨🇦 One Week Only! A comedic drama set in Toronto

I Used To Be Funny is a dark dramedy that follows Sam Cowell (Rachel Sennott), an aspiring stand-up comedian and au pair struggling with PTSD, as she decides whether or not to join the search for Brooke (Olga Petsa), a missing teenage girl she used to nanny. The story exists between the present, where Sam tries to recover from her trauma and get back on stage, and the past, where memories of Brooke make it harder and harder to ignore the petulant teen’s sudden disappearance.

Rachel Sennott is perfectly cast, portraying Sam as simultaneously lifeless and hilarious with her default blasé attitude and dry-wit humor.

Little White Lies

Rachel Sennott continues her rise as one of Hollywood’s most exciting talents to watch.
