Even as the movie escalates into full-blown wackiness, it still maintains its shrewd edge.

Robbie has to decide whether to put his own emotions above his brother or to be the bigger man.

"I'm a superficial narcissist" "I'm lazy and judgmental."This is how the two romantic leads in "My Blind Brother" introduce themselves to each other, and I fell in love with them both immediately.

After one pitiful, anti-romantic (yet soul-soaring) night together, Rose flees without leaving her phone number.

Nonetheless, Bill thinks his karma might finally be coming around and that he's found his sad-sack love-match.

Then, when they both reveal that they perversely wish they could be invalids so they'd have an excuse to lay in bed all day and watch TV, I fell in love with screenwriter Sophie Goodhart.

Add in a blind guy, jaded and bored with his own infirmity, who is smoking weed unabashedly in public, even with the police nearby, who says, "I could shoot up in front of cops and they wouldn't do anything," and I love this movie in full.Robbie's hapless, unassuming brother Bill (Nick Kroll) knows the real Robbie to be arrogant, selfish and rude, but he still guide-dog- faithfully runs every marathon by Robbie's side and never makes a peep when he doesn't receive any accolades, or when even his own parents continually criticize him.One night, Bill escapes the relentless Robbie- worship by hitting up the local bar, where despite his best efforts to present himself as unworthy and unappealing, he gets lucky with an attractive and like-hearted woman named Rose (Jenny Slate).It manages to be morbidly dark, joyfully funny and unsentimentally touching all at the same time.The storyline itself is genuinely fresh; unlike so many other films at this festival, I can't think of another previous movie to compare it to.Bill is guilt-ridden because Robbie's blindness was the result of a childhood accident in which he was involved.
