Dana Adam Shapiro first broke onto the scene in 2005 when he co-directed the documentary “Murderball.” At this year’s Tribeca Film Festival, he makes his narrative film debut with the relationship drama/thriller “Monogamy.”
The film follows Theo (Chris Messina) and Nat (Rashida Jones), a happily engaged couple living in Brooklyn. Theo enjoys his life with Nat, but he’s grown bored of his job as a wedding photographer. He decides to start an unorthodox business in which clients hire him to follow them with his camera, essentially stalking them with their knowledge.
But one client (Meital Dohan) quickly becomes an obsession, forcing Theo to rethink what he wants in life — including a marriage with Nat.
Shapiro’s “Murderball” was highly acclaimed, even garnering an Oscar nomination. His foray into fictional film sounds intriguing, and he’s managed to round up an impressive cast. If you like the emotion of relationship dramas and the mystery of romantic thrillers, this low-budget flick might be for you.
“Monogamy” premieres today at the Tribeca Film Festival. Check out a clip from the film below.
