Trailer for Pushing Dead.

The worst thing that could have happened to Dan (James Roday, TV’s Psyche) was depositing his $100 birthday check from Mom in the bank. Steeped in bittersweet comedic grace, Pushing Dead is the story of an HIV-positive writer dropped from his insurance because he “makes too much money.” Buoyed by his friend and boss Bob (Danny Glover), Dan must figure out how to turn tragedy into humor, or at least how to laugh in the face of death, just enough until he can make good on the huge cost of his medicine. Making his feature film debut, writer/director Tom E. Brown shows a deft hand at navigating this sensitive topic with grace and good humor while eliciting exciting performances. Rounding out the cast is heavy-hearted roommate Paula, (Robin Weigert, Deadwood) and Bob’s frustrated wife Dot (Khandi Alexander, Treme). Director Brown finds the laughs in the least obvious places. Even where it hurts, Brown lands one gut punch after another, proving there is no inconvenience humor can’t conquer.
