what his less

trustworthy acts are.

Exactly. I won't. I'm not telling

you anything about anything,

which is why you don't know

anything about my life

and you keep trying

to protect me

from things I don't need

to be protected from.

Is your seat belt on?



Yep, pure tranquility

with Tyler unjustly rotting

in the penal system.

Ah, brother.

It's a harmless medicinal herb.

5 kilos of a harmless

medicinal herb.

Marijuana laws are

a tool for the state

to oppress the underclass.

Underclass? His

mother owns a gallery

on the upper east side.

You're so racist!

He's white!

No, he's not.

He's 1/8 native American.

There was a genocide.

Summer, honey, baby,

I just don't want you

dragged into this.

He wants you to pretend

that they were your drugs.

He never asked me to do that.

Well, that's not

the impression you gave.

The impression you gave

is that he wants you

to go back on your deposition,

to perjure yourself,

and to say that it

was you all along.

No! I was speaking


If I took the rap, it'd just

be a juvenile sentence,

which doesn't count,

technically speaking.

Do you have any idea

how hard it was

to get your record

for theft overturned?

It wasn't theft.

It was liberation.

Those rabbits needed to be free.

Summer, summer, this is drug dealing.

It would be perjury,

and it would look awful on

your college application.

I hate you!

I know you do. I know you do.

Summer. Whoa, summer!

Get off!

Don't... that's not safe. Ow!

That's really dangerous!

Ow! My foot's stuck!

I don't care.

You're so controlling!

No wonder dad left you...

For his 23-year-old legal

secretary called Amber.

I'm sorry. What, honey?


Just give me my bag.

I need my phone.

Give me my bag!

Fine. I'll get it myself.

Josh Appignanesi

Josh Appignanesi (born 1975) is a British film director, producer, and screenwriter. Appignanesi is best known for the feature film Song of Songs (2006), starring Natalie Press, which he directed, co-wrote and co-produced. The film won several awards including a special commendation for Best British Film at the Edinburgh Film Festival. Made on a tiny budget, the film is a dark study of the intense relationship between a brother and highly religious sister in London's orthodox Jewish community. The film had a small, arthouse UK release but received critical acclaim; The Observer said it "reveals a distinctive and bold new voice in British cinema." He recently directed and script edited the comedy feature film The Infidel, written by David Baddiel and starring Omid Djalili, Richard Schiff, Archie Panjabi, Amit Shah and Yigal Naor. Produced by Arvind David at Slingshot, the film follows the adventures of a British Muslim everyman (Djalili) who discovers he was born Jewish. The film was released internationally in Spring 2010, in the UK with distributor Revolver Entertainment. He has written and directed several short films, most notably Ex Memoria (2006) which also stars Natalie Press as well as Sara Kestelman in a study of a woman with Alzheimer's disease, funded by the Wellcome Trust; and Nine 1/2 Minutes (2003), a romantic comedy starring David Tennant. He lives in London and studied anthropology at King's College, Cambridge, where he was a contemporary and close friend of the novelist Zadie Smith. He is the son of writers Lisa Appignanesi and Richard Appignanesi. more…
