Wringing subtle wit and hard-won honesty from humdrum life has become something of a trademark in the work of Frank V. Ross, a perennially under-appreciated talent of American independent cinema. Bloomin Mud Shuffle, focuses on Lonnie—a lonely, often-drunk housepainter who’s yet to leave the Chicago town in which he grew up. Sixteen years on from high school and stuck in a never-ending rut, Lonnie falls under the spell of a college-aged coworker who’s hesitant to take him seriously. With pitch-perfect performances by James Ransone (The Wire and Tangerine), Natasha Lyonne (Orange is the New Black, American Pie and Slums of Beverly Hills), Alex Karpovsky (HBO's Girls) and a keen eye for the ordinary, Ross takes a slice of Midwestern life and crafts yet another wondrous film from it.
