Overview

Todd Solondz's black comedy DARK HORSE stars Jordan Gelber as Abe, a thirtysomething loser still living with mom and dad, and employed at his father's company, even though he would rather spend his time buying toys online. He meets Miranda (Selma Blair), and tries repeatedly to go on a date with her. When he finally succeeds in this endeavor, he asks her to marry him. Soon she has given him hepatitis, and Abe goes through a series of hallucinations involving his father's secretary. DARK HORSE played at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.

Reviews:
3 stars out of 5 -- "He's either daring you not to laugh or daring you not to care, but either way, you'll laugh, care and worry about the consequences in DARK HORSE, the newest by uggo-auteur Todd Solondz." - 06/07/2012 Box Office


"Mr. Solondz brilliantly -- triumphantly -- turns this impression on its head, transforming what might have been an exercise in easy satirical cruelty into a tremendously moving argument for the necessity of compassion." - 06/08/2012 New York Times


"While skipping the more shocking turns of something like HAPPINESS, DARK HORSE does feel like a return to the fearless darkness of those earlier films, a tale of a loser who's fully drawn but never allowed to be lovable." - 06/07/2012 Movieline


3 stars out of 5 -- "The saving grace here is the acting: Gelber bringing a bittersweet poignancy to Abe...and Blair finding mopey mirth in a character..." - 06/01/2012 Total Film


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "DARK HORSE is another of his portraits of anguish in suburbia....There are times when it is dark humor, and then times when it is simply dark." - 06/20/2012 Chicago Sun-Times


"[Solondz is] back again, and on top form, with a feature that's darkly comic yet also very touching....There's an air of sympathy in the comedy..." - 07/01/2012 Sight and Sound


"DARK HORSE is perhaps Solondz's most straightforward movie....[It finds] the director engaging with his favourite theme: suburban loneliness." - 07/01/2012 Uncut
