High Society: A Potboiler
Written and directed by Kristian Davies
Produced by Eric David
Starring Erik Davies, Peter Alton, Stephanie Ann Davies, Jeremiah Bitsui, Tiffany Michael and Miller Daurey
The trailer for High Society: A Pot Boiler asks the burning question: “With buds like these, who needs friends?” After watching the film’s main characters in action, you’ll have a line of your own: “With friends like these, you’re going to need a lot of bud.”
Written and directed by award-winning author Kristian Davies, High Society: A Pot Boiler is a stoner comedy about, well, stoners. The film takes place entirely at the apartment shared by Trajan, Gavin and Yakob, three young men who love insulting each other almost as much as they love their cannabis.
The story follows the trio through a long night of self-exploration. Along the way, they inhale mass quantities, vie for the attention of two beautiful women and try to rid themselves of an unwanted visitor. The women—sexy brunette Sophie and Svetlana, a blond Russian model—begin the night incredulously observing the men, before ultimately discovering hidden charms amid bong tokes.
The humor and dialogue are rapid-fire and float around the room like smoke, drifting between clever and cliché, vulgar and absurd, sophomoric and obscure. In the end, High Society puffs out more laughs than duds, and more buds than anything else. (Greg Aragon)
