Written by Noah Haidle Directed by Sam Hoffman Assistant Directed by Ryan Chernin Deep in the deranged mind of a four year-old girl named Lucy, Mr. Marmalade sits down for some Darjeeling Oolong tea wearing a sleek, black suit and carrying a leather brief case. This imaginary creation, developed from the neglect of a single, working mother and a self-absorbed babysitter, turns out to be an abusive, drug-addicted businessman. Lucy’s only real friend is a suicidal five year-old named Larry, who finds hope in their strange and dysfunctional friendship. Mr. Marmalade is a dark, yet hilarious, comedy about the effects of neglect on a child’s imagination, as well as what it truly means to be a friend.
