THE GIANT MECHANICAL MAN is a charming comedic love story between Janice (Jenna Fischer, The Office), a woman in her thirties who has yet to learn how to navigate adulthood, and Tim (Chris Messina, Vicky Cristina Barcelona), a devoted artist who finds that his unique talents as a silver-painted street performer don’t exactly pay the bills. Evicted from her apartment and forced to move in with her overbearing sister (Malin Akerman, Couples Retreat), Janice is on the receiving end of well-intentioned but misguided pressure to date an egotistical self-help guru (Topher Grace, That ’70s Show). Everyone seems to know what’s best for Janice, but Tim helps her find her own voice and realize that it only takes one person to make you feel important. As a symbol of the urge to break free from a life defined for us, THE GIANT MECHANICAL MAN brings forward an optimism and feeling of belonging that can only come from falling in love.
