PUSHING DEAD, 2016, 108 minutes, Dir: Tom E. Brown, USA.
Yes, it’s a comedy! When Dan, a struggling writer (James Roday from Psych) and HIV-positive for 20+ years, ill-advisedly deposits a $100 birthday check, he is dropped from his health plan for earning too much income. In this new era of sort-of universal care, his only options are long shots: take on a helpless bureaucracy, or come up with $3000 a month to buy his medication. He longs for companionship, but dreading the inevitable “Hi, I’m positive” talk, he has successfully avoided the dating scene. But he’s not the only one with relationship problems. His nightclub-owning boss, Bob (Danny Glover), is trying to adjust to the single life after his wife Dot (Khandi Alexander) of 45 years tosses him out of the house. And Dan’s best friend, Paula (Robin Weigert), tired of endless disappointing dates finds life is much easier with a stuffed animal.
