College freshman Alex (played by writer-director Cooper Raiff) is deeply homesick and floundering without the comfort of his Dallas home and the safety of his codependent mother’s (Amy Landecker, Transparent) watchful eye. The closest things he has to friends are his arrogant, never-sober roommate and a stuffed animal from childhood. In a last-ditch effort to start “crushing college,” Alex arrives at the regular campus party haven, Shithouse, where an encounter with Maggie (Dylan Gelula, Support the Girls), a sophomore RA in his dorm, may just turn his shitty night (and year) around. Through a series of midnight adventures and wine-fueled deep conversations, Alex and Maggie form an intimate connection, but the next day, Alex wakes up to discover he and Maggie aren’t exactly on the same page. Brimming with humor and sincerity and featuring beautifully honest performances by Gelula and Raiff, this year’s Grand Jury Award winner at SXSW presents an exciting new voice in the next generation of American independent film.

Additional Information

Cooper Raiff is a 23-year-old filmmaker-actor from Dallas, TX. He put together a movie with great friends and stolen equipment, and in a burst of bravery, tweeted the link to Jay Duplass. To his surprise, Duplass liked he movie enough to help him develop it into the version of Shithouse. Raiff wrote, directed, edited, and starred in Shithouse, his feature-length debut.
