Good People opens on Garrett knocking at the door of his rented Airbnb on the eve of his Sax audition at Julliard. A Midwestern-type, he expects to have a quiet night in practicing, but of course, this doesn’t happen. Enter: Shane, Garrett’s slick thirty-something host, whose appetite for beer, girls, and cocaine precludes any chance of doing the responsible thing. In real life, Garrett and Shane Coffey are brothers, and
the interplay between them is evident from the first frame. Throw in a rag-tag team of thirty-something screw-ups – Thom (Peter Vack), Lilia (Sonja Mauro) and Marlowe (Francesca Root-Dodson) – all “Good People” – as the title suggests, and Garrett is thrust into a night of ultimate debauchery.
