Tom Lenk ('Buffy the Vampire Slayer') stars as Tilda Swinton in the New York premiere of this comedy about life with one of the galaxy’s greatest living actors. More…
In 'Tilda Swinton Answers an Ad on Craigslist' an isolated and aimless gay man with a "roommate wanted" ad on Craigslist finds his life, family, and relationship flipped upside down when the ad is answered by effusive and other-worldly actress Tilda Swinton, who demands she be allowed to study and dissect his sad life for her next big movie role. The two very different personalities clash immediately as things get comically chaotic and surprisingly cathartic.
