Director: Adam Nadler
Comedy, USA, 78 min
Shoot George is a modern comedy of errors about gun violence in America. The story follows George Baxter, a pacifist screenwriter who yearns to teach nonviolence to the masses with his screenplay, “He Walked Alone.” Unfortunately, George’s producers are outraged and demand that George rewrite his hero with a gun strapped to his hip, because, they say, he’s too dull, weak, and, worst of all, unsexy without it. George vehemently denies that guns make anyone more interesting or sexy, but when he finds a 9mm handgun on his doorstep, things change. He grows obsessed with the weapon, reveling in its power, and before long George finds himself not only a great success but at the top of New York’s most-wanted list
