How to Watch ‘Funny Pages': Is the New A24 Film Streaming?

·3 min read

Home to films like “Lady Bird,” “Eighth Grade” and “Mid90s,” A24 is synonymous with a certain brand of indie, auteur-driven coming-of-age story. The company’s latest is “Funny Pages,” the debut feature film from writer-director Owen Kline (who you might recognize as Frank from “The Squid and the Whale”). Set in the suburbs of New Jersey, “Funny Pages” follows Robert (Daniel Zolghadri), a talented high schooler determined to make his way as a cartoonist. When his beloved teacher suddenly passes away, he rebels against his upper-middle class upbringing and abandons future plans to attend art school.

Robert’s decision to drop out of school, rent sketchy (i.e. illegal) lodgings in a boiler room and take a low-paying assistant job bring him into the path of Wallace (Matthew Maher), a former employee at one of the comic magazines Robert idolizes. With the singular goal of getting Wallace to mentor him, Robert wreaks havoc on his relationships with his family, friends, and the many kooky characters populating his Trenton neighborhood.

Produced by the Safdie brothers’ Elara Pictures, “Funny Pages” premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, receiving a nomination for the Golden Camera First Film award. Whether you’re a fan of comics, A24 or simply looking for a new offbeat comedy, here’s how you can watch “Funny Pages.”
