Good Time Max

Good Time Max

Available on iTunes, IFC Films, AMC +, Prime Video
Max (James Franco) boasts a genius level IQ. His brother Adam (Matt Bell) is nearly as bright, but while Adam has ambition, Max's greatest talent seems to be getting into scrapes and disappointing those around him. Adam has a successful practice as a doctor in New York City, but when Max foolishly tries to swindle some well-connected drug dealers, he has to leave the Big Apple, and somehow persuades his brother to take him to California. On the West Coast, Max's inability to face his responsibilities quickly resurfaces, and when he starts using crystal meth, he loses his job. Adam also experiences a stretch of bad luck and loses his job, and as a sense of desperation takes hold, he joins Max in his drug fueled excesses, leading both down a road to destruction.
