Earlier this fall, Todd Rohal set out to raise a few thousand bucks to complete a short he was working on. By the time his Kickstarter came to an end, backers had pledged twice the original goal. In Rat Pack Rat, screening in the Shorts Competition at Sundance, Eddie Rouse plays a Sammy Davis Jr. impersonator hired via Craigslist to perform for a boy’s birthday party. When he arrives, he finds a surprise—played by Steve Little. Anyone who’s seen The Catechism Cataclysm (2011) knows that when Rohal and Little team up, anything can happen. Anything.
You don’t have to be in Park City to see Rat Pack Rat; for a limited time (so, you know, hurry), you can watch it right here at Fandor.
