If you like overly saturated pastels, unhinged over-medicated housewives, and vicious takedowns of suburban social hierarchies, then “Greener Grass” is the fall comedy for you. The self-proclaimed “bizarro” film marks the directorial debut of filmmaking duo Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe, and was one of the surprise hits of the Sundance Film Festival’s Midnight section, known for hosting the festival’s zaniest genre offerings. IFC Midnight released the first official trailer today, offering a look at this avant-garde suburban satire from two singular new comedic voices.

The official synopsis reads: “In a day-glo-colored, bizarro version of suburbia where adults wear braces on their already-straight teeth, everyone drives golf carts, and children magically turn into golden retrievers, soccer moms and best friends Jill (DeBoer) and Lisa (Luebbe) are locked in a passive aggressive battle-of-the-wills that takes a turn into the sinister when Lisa begins systematically taking over every aspect of Jill’s life — starting with her newborn daughter. Meanwhile, a psycho yoga teacher killer is on the loose, Jill’s husband (Beck Bennett) has developed a curious taste for pool water, and Lisa is pregnant with a soccer ball.”
