In a world where the perm of Bob Ross is no longer in vogue, comes the highly anticipated comedy film “Paint.” Starring Owen Wilson, the film follows the journey of Carl Nargle, a Ross-like character and host of Vermont’s beloved public television series. Nargle, with his signature perm and custom van, has built a following of dedicated fans who hang on to every stroke of his brush.
However, when a new TV painter takes the spotlight, Nargle is forced to confront the reality that his fame may be fading. Directed by Brit McAdam, the film features a cast of talented actors, including Michaela Watkins, Wendi McLendon-Covey, Ciara Renee, Lusia Strus, Lucy Freyer, and Stephen Root.
Wilson brings a unique warmth and delicacy to his performance as Nargle, delivering a portrayal that is both relatable and entertaining. McAdam’s direction brings a touch of Napoleon Dynamite’s quirky charm, making “Paint” a film not to be missed.
It’s important to note that this is not a biopic about Bob Ross, but rather a fictional story that pays homage to the relaxing and enjoyable nature of art and painting. “Paint” opens in theaters on April 7, 2023, and promises to bring joy and laughter to audiences everywhere.
