Video: Los Angeles Dinner Parties Turn Into Sex Parties In 'The Overnight'

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

California is a magical land where a family pizza party to welcome the new neighbors is a ruse for a sexy party, according to a new trailer for The Overnight.

The new sex comedy is produced by the Duplass Brothers, who have found a niche examining the social mores of upper middle class 30-somethings on Los Angeles' not-quite-Eastside (most recently in HBO's Togetherness). It stars Taylor Schilling and Adam Scott as transplants from Seattle who don't quite know what they're in for when they show up to the home of their friendly, swinging neighbors Jason Schwartzman and Judith Godrèche.

Like any comedy about Los Angeles, there are jokes about dietary restrictions and actresses. And Schwartzman seduces straight-man Scott with the oldest trick in the Angeleno seduction playbook: inviting him to his "photography zone" and telling him, "You have a really great look, anyone ever tell you that?"

The comedy being hailed as our generation's Bob & Carol & Ted & Alice played at Sundance, and it's also playing at the Tribeca Film Festival April 21 to April 23. Fans of full-frontal male nudity can look for it at a theater near you come June.
