How I Met Your Mother star Josh Radnor makes his directorial feature debut with happythankyoumoreplease, one of 16 films selected from 1,058 submissions for the U.S. Dramatic Competition at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. Written by Radnor, the dramedy tells the story of six New Yorkers who “negotiate love, friendship, and gratitude at a time when they’re too old to be precocious and not ready to be adults.”
Radnor worked on the script for several years, writing during down time from the CBS sitcom and shot in New York City during series hiatus. Radnor also co-stars in the film, alongside Malin Akerman (Watchmen), Kate Mara, Zoe Kazan, Tony Hale, Pablo Schreiber, and Michael Algieri. Akerman, pictured above, plaus Annie, a woman with a condition called Alopecia Universalis, which doesn’t allow her to grow hair. I’ve included a few images after the jump, along with he official sundance synopsis.
