Synopsis by Mark Deming
Two people stumble into a relationship as they sort out their emotional baggage in this low-key independent comedy. Thirty-something Kira (Kenya Miles) has just broken up with her boyfriend of seven years and has lost her job, forcing her to look for new employment as soon as possible. Kira happens to meet Max (Wiley Wiggins), a fashion-challenged slacker who work in the office of a local elected official, training new volunteers and offering them unsolicited advice about throwing away their principles. Kira and Max have a one night stand, which proves a bit embarrassing for both of them, especially since Max happens to have a steady girlfriend, Sara (Ia Hernandez), who works with drug addicts and the handicapped and has the patience of a saint. As Kira is forced to jump through hoops in order to land a copy editing position that's clearly beneath her qualifications, she finds herself fascinated with Max, while he keeps thinking about her and asking his best friend Mason (Andrew Bujalski) is this makes him a bad person. Sorry, Thanks was the first feature from writer and director Dia Sokol, and an official selection at the 2009 South by Southwest Film Festival.
