BEESWAX revolves around the personal and professional entanglements of twin sisters Jeannie and Lauren (played by extraordinary newcomers Tilly and Maggie Hatcher) living in Austin, Texas. Jeannie co-owns a bright, candy-colored vintage clothing store. When a conflict with her business partner threatens to boil over, she turns to an ex-boyfriend, Merrill (Alex Karpovsky), who is recently graduated from law school and all too eager to try to fix the sisters' problems as a way of ignoring his own. Soon everyone is trying to lend each other a hand but nothing is going according to plan. Charming and intimate, this is a story about how we depend on our families (the kind we're stuck with and the kind we build for ourselves) and the beeswax that holds them all together. As in director Andrew Bujalski's earlier MUTUAL APPRECIATION and FUNNY HA HA, a deceptively modest premise gives way to the unavoidable foibles of humankind.
