Hank was on the verge of committing suicide on a beach, when a dead body washes up on shore. Through excessive farting noises coming from the body, Hank ditches his plan and he and the body, soon named Manny head back towards home. Through Manny’s capabilities, Hank was able to survive in the forest, and a bond between them is formed.
The spin on what is, in its essence, an archetypal indie film is what had me on board, and it works. It’s funny in a non-raunchy manner, and its approach doesn’t take away the core of the film. Paul Dano is fantastic as Hank, and Daniel Radcliffe has added another impressive feat in his resume.
