Review

TURKEY BOWL is an admirably concise directorial debut from Kyle Smith... Unfolding in real time, this disarmingly naturalistic comedy... [is a] showcase for Smith s technical skills and his ability to capture the nuances of tight-knit camaraderie. --IndieWire

Product Description

Product Description

Every summer, Jon (Jon Schmidt) gathers 10 friends together in his adopted city to play the Turkey Bowl bringing a piece of small-town tradition to the urban sprawl all for the beloved prize for the winning team... a turkey. Friendships flare and fade, jealousy is met with both laughter and pain, and old and unrequited love threatens to remain old and unrequited, and all of these undercurrents are revealed in the unique, improvised rhythm of backyard football.

As college friends grow older and spend less time together, there are subtle shifts within existing relationships. Kyle Smith's slight, but enjoyable, feature "Turkey Bowl" explores this evolving dynamic within the context of a real-time friendly football game. Once a year, eight friends (with two newbies) get together for an afternoon of symbolic fun on the field in an epic battle to win a frozen turkey. It's a time to catch up, a time to reminisce, a time to explore what it means to be together. There are no grand messages within "Turkey Bowl," just a pleasing casualness and flow to the conversation and camaraderie shared by the group. It's easy to like the film and the unexpected charm of its dialogue. The performers are an appealing crew even as we know them only superficially. Certain viewers will really appreciate the simplicity of "Turkey Bowl." But as I say that, I am confident that another (perhaps larger) group will be mystified by this one hour exercise.

The movie has no particular plot, it just is. As such, it is NOT a film for everyone. In many ways, the experience of "Turkey Bowl" feels more like a experiment than a fully formed narrative. I wonder how Smith might expand his subject were he ever to revisit these characters. He has set up an intriguing scenario and I was certainly willing to spend time with its participants, but the film's gentle tone and open-ended feel doesn't add up to much in the long run. I liked the movie, I just don't know that I'll remember it in a few months. Smith has a talent, especially showcased within the subtleties of the screenplay, and I think that he is definitely one to watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gem. June 25, 2011

I saw this at a showing in NYC. I had no idea what I was getting myself into, but I couldn't have been more pleased with the result. Turkey Bowl is 60 minutes of great fun wrapped in this super natural, real-time story gifted to us be an amazing cast. It's funny, it's got heart, there's football. It's the whole package.
