We’ve been lucky enough to sit down with the director of the Lad, Marcus Pickerington, and he shared with us some of his thoughts on the movie, his favorite scenes, and more.
What can we expect?
The Lad is a darkly comedic comedy about two brothers and their son, Marcus, who are growing up in a small town in New Jersey.
The boys, now in their early 20s, are always having fun and they live in a tiny apartment with a pool and a backyard.
Marcus is a shy, introverted boy, and his older brother, Luke, is the quietest of the three.
One day, while Marcus is having a birthday party, Luke’s brother, Nick, comes by and announces he is the one who has stolen Marcus’s birthday party.
Marcus and Nick get into a fight, but Nick is able to calm down the situation and is able turn the tables.
Nick is a hard-working and well-adjusted kid who always manages to keep his mouth shut.
Marcus, however, is not so fortunate.
Marcus ends up getting into an argument with Luke and then Nick.
When Luke confronts Marcus about the fight, Marcus is shocked and starts crying.
He is later seen comforting Nick by saying that he was in his way and that they were just trying to be nice.
Marcus realizes Nick’s reaction to him was wrong and tells Nick to apologize.
Nick tells Marcus he is not sorry and he goes to apologize to Luke.
Marcus walks out and goes to his room to take his medication.
Luke sees Marcus crying and rushes over to comfort him.
Marcus tells Luke that he will always love Nick and asks Luke if he will ever be able to go to college.
Luke asks Marcus if he has ever been able to tell Nick how he feels.
Marcus says that he hasn’t and that he is sorry he hurt him.

Nick is upset and tells Marcus that he can never forgive Marcus for hurting him.
Nick apologizes and leaves.
Nick returns to his house and tells his parents that he wants to go see his friends.
Nick’s parents try to dissuade him, but he says that they will not let him go.
Nick has been going to his friends to celebrate their birthday for weeks, and Nick is getting close to his 18th birthday.
Nick wants to take a trip to his family’s house in California and see the beach.
When Nick leaves the house, he is approached by two men.
Nick says that the men are just jealous of his friendship with Marcus.
The men say they are looking for Marcus because Nick’s family is on the road and wants him to meet them.
Nick gives the men his phone and they tell Nick that they are going to ask him to come home.
Nick goes to the house and walks into Marcus’ bedroom.
Nick starts crying and asks Marcus for forgiveness.
Marcus apologizes for being rude and apologizes to Nick for making Nick feel uncomfortable.
Marcus then tells Nick what happened in the apartment.
Nick walks out of the house crying and tells everyone to leave him alone.
