AIFF 2006: Expiration Date

Is Rick Stevenson, the director of Expiration Date an American Benigni in the making? The premise of the film is that the main character, Charles Silvercloud III(played by Robert Guthrie), has both his grandfather and father killed by milk trucks on their 25th birthdays. Charles thinks there is no way to escape the horrible fate that awaits him and starts making preparations for his final farewell from the earth. What follows is a comedy of errors played out in the refreshing romantic landscape of Seattle.
