Spin Me Round is anything but your average travel comedy. The movie features a slew of curious characters who find themselves in some mighty unusual genre-spanning situations, and who better to pull them all together than writer-director Jeff Baena and his frequent collaborators?
Alison Brie co-wrote the screenplay and also stars in the movie as Amber. She’s a star manager at Tuscan Grove’s Bakersfield, California location. Her hard work and dedication earn her a free trip to Italy to participate in the franchise’s educational immersion program. Soon after arriving, Amber starts to think this could be the romantic getaway of her dreams, but then the situation starts to unravel, leaving her and her fellow Tuscan Grove managers to wonder if they should be questioning the company CEO’s (Alessandro Nivola) intentions.
With Spin Me Round celebrating its world premiere at SXSW 2022, Baena, Brie, Nivola, and co-stars Aubrey Plaza and Molly Shannon all joined us for a virtual interview to cover their experience making this whirlwind of a movie. Check out what they told us about that and the health benefits of peanuts in this interview!
