Summary

When Oliver travels to Thailand to bring his reckless and hedonistic brother back home to the U.S. to face pending legal charges against him, the intoxication of the exotic world changes his plans and the two embark on an out-of-the-ordinary adventure.


Summary

Seth Grossman's psychological drama The Elephant King concerns two brothers who have very different outlooks on life. Jake Hunt is a scientist working in Thailand who, dissatisfied with much of his life, does little work and lives his life in a state of great excess. He invites his younger brother, Oliver, to visit. Even though the two have a strained relationship, Oliver accepts as he has been suffering from a severe depression. Oliver joins Jake in nights of excess, and falls in love with a girl whom Jake is paying to be nice to Oliver. As the threesome heads toward a tragic conclusion, each brother questions his own motivations for his actions. The Elephant King had its world premiere at the 2006 Tribeca Film Festival. ~ Perry Seibert, Rovi
