An uproar has erupted over Sundance’s debut On the Count of Three, a dark comedy thriller that took home a prize at the Waldo Salt Screenwriting Award ceremony. An expanded audience will soon have access to the film, owing to a simultaneous release on May 13 in select cinemas and on digital streaming platforms.
Ari Katcher and Ryan Welch wrote and produced On the Count of Three, which follows depressed best friends Val (Jerrod Carmichael) and Kevin (Christopher Abbott) as they plan their suicide pact, which forces them to kill one another (because apparently, that’s what friends are for). The film was released by Annapurna Pictures and Orion Pictures.
On the Count of Three plot
His coworker enters the restroom and begins to sing and the miserable blue-collar worker named Val attempts to commit suicide, but he is thwarted by the presence of his coworker. Val ends his relationship with Natasha and resigns from his work. A psychiatric hospital is no match for him when it comes to helping his best friend Kevin, who had recently attempted suicide as well. As a final act of desperation, Val warns Kevin that committing suicide is the only option.
Val shoots at Kevin, but Kevin dodges. He persuades Val to at least celebrate their final day on Earth. His major purpose is to kill Dr. Brenner, the child psychiatrist who abused him. While Dr. Brenner’s office claims he doesn’t start work until late afternoon, Val and Kevin have yet to hear that claim.
