THE PERFECT HOST
With David Hyde Pierce, Clayne Crawford , Megahn Perry, Nathaniel Parker
Written by Nick Tomnay, Krishna Jones
Directed by Nick Tomnay
Not taking too many prominent screen roles since the popular TV sitcom Frasier had its final season, here David Hyde Pierce goes in an unexpected direction by taking this role.
John is a criminal on the run. He enters a suburban house and forces the owner to have him hole up there while the heat subsides. But, Warwick has a dinner party planned, and John soon becomes part of the plans. Each of their backgrounds, secrets, lies and truths slowly get exposed as the tense evening progresses, seeming to steer towards disaster.
A very cool twist makes this worth the watch, as well as Hyde Pierce's non-typecast role.
