The Oh In Ohio
Priscilla Chase (Parker Posey), a young Cleveland woman, seems to have it all – the perfect job, the perfect house, the perfect husband (Paul Rudd) – except for in bed, where sex has always left her a bit short of the finish line. When the problem drives her husband to leave her suddenly for one of his high school students (Mischa Barton), Priscilla’s idyllic world is shattered. She sets out on a quest to become just as good at sex as she is at everything else in life, embarking on a wild journey that leads her into the arms of the man she least expected and to the discovery that happiness is sometimes found in the most unlikely places.
Written by Adam Wierzbianski and directed by Billy Kent in his feature debut, THE OH IN OHIO co-stars Danny DeVito, Liza Minnelli, Miranda Bailey (DEAD & BREAKFAST), Keith David (CRASH) and Robert John Burke (GOOD NIGHT, AND GOOD LUCK).
Following its premiere earlier this year at the South by Southwest Film Festival, THE OH IN OHIO was honored with the Best Comedy award at the 2006 Vail Film Festival and was named the Santa Monica Centerpiece at the 2006 Malibu Film Festival. THE OH IN OHIO will open in New York, Los Angeles, Orange County, Encino, Pasadena, Santa Monica, San Francisco and Cleveland on July 14, followed by a national roll-out.
