Successful, self-involved novelist Eric Lambert Jones (Sean Nelson) has been unceremoniously dumped by his life long buddy Dylan (Basil Harris). In an attempt to piece together the fractured friendship, Eric takes a side trip from his latest book tour to drop in on Dylan, newly settled in the picturesque backwoods of Washington state. Eric and Dylan gingerly navigate their way through the wreckage of their relationship but tension brims to the surface with the addition of Dylan's enigmatic new friend, Jim (Calvin Reeder). An awkward weekend ensues as the three men chop wood, match wits and ultimately embark on a late-night, booze-soaked cougar hunt.MY EFFORTLESS BRILLIANCE is a subtle and naturalistic portrait of a type seldom seen on film. The deftly improvised and highly nuanced performances shine a keen and humorous light on the unspoken intricacies of male friendship.
