Clown Face by Jason Jeffrey

A man has a midlife crisis and leaves his wife. But now, he's lonely and wants his family back.

Michael had a midlife crisis, left his wife and bought a Porsche. But it hasn’t worked out the way he expected.

Now he’s lonely and looking to put the pieces of his life back to get together. To do that, he has to seek forgiveness and advice from his angry daughter Laurie. But getting drunk and crashing her date isn’t quite the best way to go about it…

Director Jason Jeffrey’s short has a dramatic premise, examining the complicated dynamics between parents and children, especially as the power shifts between generations.

But with its strong, honest performances and excellent dialogue, the film also mines the main character’s pathos and immaturity for absurdist comedic gold. The result is an emotionally rich work showing how you’re never too old to grow… or grow up.
