King of the Corner


Theatrical Release February 3, 2006

A sardonic, dead-pan social comedy about the dangers of navigating life without a compass, KING OF THE CORNER paints a portrait of Leo (Peter Riegert), his family and his world. His father (Eli Wallach) is ailing, his daughter (Ashley Johnson) is growing up too fast, his protégé (Jake Hoffman) is after his job, his wife (Isabella Rossellini) is running out of patience, an old flame resurfaces (Beverly D’Angelo) and his judgement is becoming blurred. Through a twist of fate and the help of an unorthodox rabbi (Eric Bogosian), Leo charts his way through these murky waters towards middle age self-redemption and a second chance.
