Gentlemen Broncos

What it's about:

Benjamin, home-schooled by his eccentric mother, is a lovable loner whose passion for writing leads him on an offbeat and hilarious journey as his story first gets ripped off by the legendary fantasy novelist, Ronald Chevalier, and then is adapted into a disastrous movie by the small town’s most prolific homespun filmmaker.

What the critics thought:

"Classic underdog vs smug establishment stuff, you might think. But it’s all played out in puke-slathered anti-comedy sketches better suited to no-budget YouTube videos than a multimillion-dollar film."
- Ken McIntyre, Total Film

"Jared Hess, who made Napoleon Dynamite, a film I admit I didn't get, has made a film I don't even begin to get."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

"What Michael Bay did for the Hollywood blockbuster with his second Transformers movie, Jared Hess has now done for the low-budget indie with Gentlemen Broncos - namely, stain an entire genre with a sense of soulless calculation."
- John Anderson, Washington Post

"It tests your patience even at 90 minutes."
- Lou Lumenick, New York Post

A teenager attends a fantasy writers' convention where he discovers his idea has been stolen by an established novelist.
