Rancho Mirage

Written by Steven Dietz and Directed by Dallas Ray

Rancho Mirage is a bitingly funny black comedy about what happens when the fictions that hold our lives together are exposed. In this sharp and surprising sojourn into the psyche of modern-day America—where affluence is perhaps our greatest mirage—three couples, long-time friends, find themselves at a dinner party where everyone finally decides to tell the truth. Rancho Mirage asks what connects us when our youth, our dreams, and our last bottle of wine are gone.
