Young couple Richard (Michael Urie) and Alex (Randy Harrison) want what everyone wants: career, kids and a gorgeous home in L.A. But it all seems so impossible until they crash a party at Edendale, their dream house, owned by Jake (Scott Wolf) and Chloe (Kate Reinders), who are hosting a fundraiser for the orphans of Bhutan. Richard and Alex hit it off with the hosts, and while house-sitting for them, discover a secret room filled with a million in cash!
When Jake and Chloe die in a “rickshaw accident” overseas, Richard and Alex worry the cash might not go to the orphans, so they break into Edendale and take the money. They earnestly try to donate the money to Jigme Wangchuck (Alec Mapa), the deputy ambassador of the Embassy of Bhutan, and his assistant Priti Khagda (Tania Gunadi). But the Embassy officials, thinking they’re being set up, refuse the money. So Richard and Alex deposit the cash, find another charity, and end up writing a check to “The Porpoise Purpose,” headed by Stuart Hendron (Lance Bass) and his assistant Olivier (Mitch Silpa).
Just then, they learn from their Realtor, Logan, (Tom Lenk), that Edendale is now on the market. They really want it but have given the money to the porpoise charity – so they stop payment on the check and use the money as down payment on the house, intending to repay the charity by taking out a second mortgage once escrow closes. But tough yet savvy LAPD Detective Dianne Kershman (Ana Ortiz) sees things differently. She tells Richard and Alex that Jake and Chloe were in fact murdered. Worried the killers must be after the money, they panic… and things only get crazier from there.
Such Good People is a hysterically funny madcap indie comedy about a gay couple who are not defined by their sexuality – but by their love and their desire for success. They’re also, of course, every bit as crazy as the straight people in the movie.
Watch the trailer for Such Good People below. The film is available now on Dekkoo.
