Brass Teapot, The

A FILM BY Ramaa Mosley

The Brass Teapot conjures just the right mix of whimsy, warmth, and integrity, a grown-up fantasia about real-world concerns.
- Considering Film


John and Alice are 20-something, married, very much in love, and broke. Once voted “most likely to succeed,” Alice (Juno Temple) struggles to make ends meet while her friends enjoy the good life. Her husband John (Michael Angarano), neurotic and riddled with phobias, just wants to get the bills paid. But an accident leads them to a roadside antique shop where Alice is drawn to a mysterious brass teapot. It isn’t long before they realize that this is no ordinary teapot and that perhaps they have found the answer to all of their financial woes…The Brass Teapot is a magical dark comedy that reminds us to be careful what we wish for.
