Mistakes Were Made is a hilarious, but also deeply moving character study of a man seeking redemption, but inescapably creating destruction. Fleix Artifex, a B-list Off-Broadway producer, gets in way over his fast-talking head when he takes on a gargantuan epic about the French Revolution which he thinks is going to be his ticket to professional and personal redemption. While trying to land a big star for the lead role, he uses all his powers of persuasion, seduction and intimidation to strong-arm the writer into massively rewriting his play. At the same time, he attempts to reconnect with his estranged wife and untangle himself from a mess involving sheep in a distant war-torn country.
with Academy Award-nominee Michael Shannon as producer Felix Artifex
