Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this witty and understated thriller, Gregg (Kelly Miller) has just hired on as a new office drone at a large and faceless corporate office. While Gregg has heard some curious rumors about his immediate predecessor and senses he hasn't been welcomed warmly by his co-workers, he doesn't think much of it until he stays late one evening and is locked into the building. As the night wears on, Gregg discovers his employers are looking for more than just hard work and the right attitude from their workers, resulting in a terrifying ordeal. The New Guy was the debut feature film from writer and director Bilge Ebiri.
