In one of the festival’s deals, Results was picked up by Magnolia pictures ahead of its premiere at Sundance this past January. Written and directed by Andrew Bujalski (Computer Chess), the film takes place in the fitness world of Austin, Texas. The film stars Guy Pearce and Cobie Smulders as two personal trainers whose lives are upended by the recently divorced Kevin Corrigan. Giovanni Ribisi, Anthony Michael Hall, Brooklyn Decker and Constance Zimmer also star. Results is scheduled for a limited theatrical release on May 29 and will also be available on iTunes.
Recently divorced, newly rich, and utterly miserable, Danny (Kevin Corrigan) would seem to be the perfect test subject for a definitive look at the relationship between money and happiness. Danny’s well-funded ennui is interrupted by a momentous trip to the local gym, where he meets self-styled guru/owner Trevor (Guy Pearce) and irresistibly acerbic trainer Kat (Cobie Smulders). Soon, their three lives are inextricably knotted, both professionally and personally.
