International Panorama

Dark comedy | United States | 2021

Episode(s): 1 & 2
Series: 8 x 60min

Allison McRoberts, a woman we all grew up believing we knew: the prototypical Sitcom Wife. She’s beautiful and can take a joke (though she’s usually the butt of them). And she’s married to a guy who must’ve won some sort of marriage lottery, because she looks the way she does and he’s… funny. But what happens when we follow Allison out of her husband’s domain? When she finally wakes up to—and revolts against—the injustices in her life? Kevin Can F**K Himself breaks television convention and blends multi-camera comedy with single-camera realism to make us ask: “who and what have we been laughing at all of these years?”.

Our take

The meta-series of the festival about the emancipation – seen in cinematic, single-camera style – of a woman trapped in the hell of a 90s family sitcom. A bitter critique that evokes the entire history of American television and denounces its influence on societal expectations put on women.
