SUMMER LATE NIGHTS. Jacob Burns Film Center, 364 Manville Rd., Pleasantville. July 13: “Office Space.” The only thing cubicle drone Peter hates more than his job at tech startup Initech is his smarmy boss, Bill Lumbergh. Frustrated with his lot in life, especially his go-nowhere job, Peter submits to hypnotherapy as a possible solution, only to have the therapist die during the session. Left in a constant state of peaceful euphoria and with a newfound apathy to almost everything around him, Peter manages to not only impress The Bobs, a duo of downsizing consultants sent in to evaluate every employee on staff but get himself promoted by doing absolutely nothing. When his two close friends and co-workers are getting fired, the trio devise a plan to skim fractions of a cent from each transaction their company makes. When a coding error causes the gang to accidentally steal $300,000 overnight, Peter must decide whether or not to come clean about the scam.

On the advice of a film company colleague, they stage “auditions” for a new girlfriend that masquerade as an acting job. Shigeharu becomes enchanted with Asami: a spooky 20-something responsive to his charms. But this is no ordinary Fatal Attraction-style thriller, for it carefully pulls the audience through a wrenching exploration of deep male fears and the stereotype of submissive Japanese women.
