A deliciously twisted comedy set in a demented, timeless suburbia where every adult wears braces on their straight teeth, couples coordinate meticulously pressed outfits, and coveted family members are swapped in more ways than one in this competition for acceptance.

“On the surface, Greener Grass is a comedy satirizing suburbia, but to us it’s a horror movie. […] Adults acting like petulant children, people in power unable to see past what’s right in front of them, and a desire permeating our country both politically and culturally to return to the ‘good old days.’ We felt that now, more than ever, was a great time to explore, not the people in power, but the polite society in this timeless suburbia with its roots in those aforementioned eras of economic prosperity and social conservatism.”
