Synopsis by Perry Seibert
Damián Szifron's jet-black comedy Wild Tales contains six shorts that all tell disturbing and funny stories. The first involves a plane full of people who discover they have something in common. The second is a tale of revenge. The third tells the story of a road-rage incident that escalates to unbelievable proportions. The fourth follows a man fed up with governmental bureaucracy. The fifth features a wealthy family attempting to buy their son out of a jail stint after he kills someone in a car accident. The final episode takes place at a wedding where a jealous bride turns her reception into a Grand Guignol experience for her husband and some of her guests. Wild Tales screened at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
