Chalmette Movies is playing Do-Deca-Pentathlon all week, July 27-August 2, as part of their Chalmette Arts Scene, at 2:00pm and 7:00pm daily. This is an exclusive New Orleans premiere and it just baffles my mind that no other theater would give this film a theatrical run in New Orleans. This film is by the Duplass Brothers, who grew up here in Metairie.

From Jay and Mark Duplass, the writer/directors of the Sundance hits “The Puffy Chair,” “Cyrus” and “Jeff, Who Lives at Home” comes “The Do-Deca-Pentathlon,” the story of two grown brothers who secretly compete in a homemade Olympics during a family reunion. When their fierce and disruptive competition is uncovered, the brothers must choose between their passion for beating the hell out of each other and the greater good of the family.
