Small Apartments Movie PSmall Apartments – Synopsis

Franklin Franklin (Lucas) plays the alp horn and dreams of Switzerland. His crazy brother (James Marsden) sends him fingernail clippings in the mail. One of his neighbours is a forgetful pot-head, the other a gruff busybody who doesn’t miss anything. Across the street live a mother and her fifteen-year-old daughter, whom he likes to watch from his window, but none of these are Franklin’s real problem. His real problem is that his landlord is dead, laid out on the linoleum of his kitchen, and Switzerland seems farther away all the time.

“The movie is really about hope and not giving up, opening up your mind to deal with changes in life,” says Akerlund. We are all for that and a good laugh to boot.

The film’s run time is approximately 97 minutes.
