NO LONGER PLAYING
When a young white couple’s car breaks down after a weekend getaway, they’re helped by an older black man who inspires them with his creative wisdom. When they discover six months later that the words he spoke might not be his own, they’re
horrified, fixating on his “crime” while forced to confront the originality of their own lives.
A social and philosophical investigation disguised as a gleefully barbed satire, “The Plagiarists,” directed by Peter Parlow from a script by James N. Kienitz Wilkins and Robin Schavoir, deserves to be the summer’s art house conversation starter.
