A depressed dentist in mid life crisis tries to learn why one of his happiest patients suddenly commits suicide, and a dark comedic adventure ensues.
In the opening moments of Phil, the titular depressed dentist played by Greg Kinnear (the well-known comedic presence is also making his directorial debut with this feature) is all set to hurl his body off of an active bridge with the intentions of drowning in the body of water below. He does talk himself out of it, but not before a group of immature bypassers eggs Phil on to kill himself, excitedly rambling about his likelihood of going viral and becoming infamous. It’s an ugly side of society but one necessary to show in
