A (NSFW) LOOK AT MODERN DAY LOVE AND COMMITMENT
Jefferson (Grant Rosenmeyer, The Royal Tenenbaums) is a lovable ski-bum temp worker whose singular joy comes from an annual excursion to the slopes with fellow vagabond/best friend, Curtis (Reid Ewing, Modern Family). When Jefferson falls for fellow temp worker, Stephanie (Lindsey Shaw, Pretty Little Liars), an ambitious go-getter, he is forced to re-evaluate his minimum wage, minimum commitment lifestyle. Eden Sher (The Middle) plays Stephanie’s witty best friend while Chris Bauer (True Blood) plays Jefferson’s slacker dad in this funny, heartfelt, workplace-romance from award-winning director Ryan Sage (A Big Love Story).
The Los Angeles Times raves, "Rosenmeyer and Shaw have an easy charm and chemistry together" while the Hollywood Reporter glows, "Lindsey Shaw emerges as a funny, sexy comedienne."
Based on a script bought off Craigslist, Temps is one of indie films biggest success stories of the year. Despite its ultra-low budget, the trailer struck a nerve with audiences and went viral, racking up more than 52 million views. Those views turned to sales and after a limited theatrical run, Temps became a chart topping romantic comedy, hitting #1 on iTunes bestseller list in April of 2016 and peaking again in July and August as a Top 5 indie.
The film is co-produced by Grandex, a tech media company who owns and operates the lifestyle websites TotalFratMove, TotalSororityMove, and PostGradProblems. Grandex has been successful creating products that resonate with their audience, including a clothing brand and a New York Times best-selling book. This is their first venture into film.
