BendFilm: Twenty Million People 

The modern romantic comedy is a joke. The genre fosters the fantasy of charming men who stalk ex-lovers through airports (creepy), come to the church to break up your wedding (annoying), and Peter Gabriel fans who are willing to stand stoically in the rain with boom boxes all in the name of undying love (also creepy).
Twenty Million People, an independent comedy that will show at BendFilm in October, asks the next intuitive question of the rom-com: What happens after the big kiss? After the music swells and the leads finally admit their quirky flaws and their love for each other? With a healthy dosage of jaded cynicism and what nearly every rom-com lacks (e.g., reality), writer, director, producer and actor Michael Ferrell asks how it can be that in New York City, a metro area of nearly 20 million, it's nearly impossible to find someone you're genuinely interested in—and the mess that can come after you do.
