Your purchase processed within minutes of your order. In business since 1975! The movie was written and directed by Noah Baumbach, whom you may know as the writer/director of "The Squid and the Whale" and more recently, "Margot at the Wedding". "Highball" is from 1997, and Mr. Baumbach chose to put two different aliases on the film as the writer and the director. Hopefully he's not ashamed of this early flick of his because it's quite enjoyable. The story is simple. Young couple throw three parties over the course of a year. First is a birthday party for a very odd friend. The second is a hoot of a Halloween party (the funniest sequence). And last is a New Year's Eve party. Their friends come over and people fight and kiss and play games and eat. The cast is very diverse: Justine Bateman (who is excellent as a wallflower who later blossoms), director Peter Bogdanovich (who is delightful as he quotes from various movies), Ally Sheedy and Rae Dawn Chong (who both play themselves), Eric Stoltz, Annabella Sciorra and Chris Eigeman. Different and fun.
