"A lovely, funny, unabashedly odd romance from first-time feature filmmaker Matt Aselton." –Steve Ramos, indieWIRE
**TORONTO INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL OFFICIAL SELECTION**
PAUL DANO and ZOOEY DESCHANEL star in the offbeat, surreal love story about the anxiety that arises when two people with crazy families collide…
Brian (PAUL DANO) is a mattress store worker who wants to adopt a Chinese baby. When free-spirited Harriet aka “Happy” (ZOOEY DESCHANEL) comes into his store one day and falls asleep on a bed, he is swept up in a romance that rocks his quiet world. Their new love twists and turns around their many eccentric relatives and Brian’s looming call from the adoption agency. GIGANTIC also stars John Goodman, Ed Asner and Jane Alexander, and features a very special appearance by comedy genius Zach Galifianakis.
GIGANTIC’s awesome soundtrack features music by ANIMAL COLLECTIVE and RODDY BOTTUM.
