Fiction. The underground cult hit that won the Grand Prize of the 23rd Annual International 3-Day Novel Writing Contest is now a major motion picture from Sony Entertainment directed by Grammy Award winner Jonas Akerlund and starring the most refreshingly offbeat cast ever assembled for a dark indie comedy. Often drawing comparisons to comic classics like John Kennedy Toole's A Confederacy of Dunces and Charles Portis's The Dog of the South, SMALL APARTMENTS follows the misadventures of corpulent misanthrope, Franklin Franklin, as he tries to dispose of his dead landlord. Surrounded by quirky neighbours, strange fingernail collections, and the occasional blast from a treasured alphorn, Frankin slowly discovers that our lives are much more than the stories we tell ourselves. In fact, true happiness might just be a state of mind.

"Singularly weird."—John DeFore

"Warped, witty, wonderful."—Jarrett Wieselman

"brisk and compact…surprisingly expansive thematic breadth, a thoughtful, silly yet serious study in goofy pathos."—The Globe and Mail

"SMALL APARTMENTS was written in three days and won the 3-Day Novel Contest. People take three years to write something this well thought out. The reason for me to do the movie was the story and the character."—Billy Crystal

"Something very unique. Absurd and irreverent. Sometimes we have too much time to think. Just go into the madness and play."—James Marsden
