Meanwhile directed by Hal HartleyEach week, Fandor’s curators serve up a newly available film worthy of special attention. Our inaugural Featured Release is Hal Hartley’s Meanwhile.

“[A] perfect little breeze of smart, funny, tender, minor-key cinematic uplift that never strains itself or wears out its welcome.” – Christopher McQuain, DVD Talk

Hal Hartley’s latest film, the independent dramedy Meanwhile, is available beginning today on Fandor. A mainstay of American independent filmmaking since the mid 1980s, Hartley has gained a loyal following over the years for his special blend of eccentric characters, unusual dialogue and deadpan humor. Meanwhile follows a day in the life of Joe Fulton, a gregarious everyman, as he journeys through New York City encountering an assortment of troubled citizens and unforeseen obstacles. You can view the trailer for Meanwhile HERE.
