Everything you never wanted to know about the male psyche and thus never asked about

Anthropologist Sarah Quinn has just experienced a sudden and baffling breakup and for her thesis, she sets out to conduct a series of intimate interviews with men on the subject of women, relationships and sexuality. In the process, she learns more about the male psyche than she ever wanted to know. Based on the critically acclaimed short story collection by David Foster Wallace, BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN is a funny and entertaining indie film, with plenty of dark and disturbing underlying themes.
