New York, NY, August 22–No experience? No skills? No clue? You’re hired! This November, Koch Lorber Films presents the riotous DVD debut of Janice Beard, an enchanting ride with a young woman and her limitless imagination. Winner of Best First Feature and the Maverick Spirit Award at the 2000 Cinequest San Jose Film Festival and the Film Discovery Jury Award at the 2002 U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, Janice Beard stars Irish stage comedienne Eileen Walsh (Magdalene Sisters) in her debut performance, along with Rhys Ifans (Notting Hill) and Patsy Kensit (Lethal Weapon 2). This wry comedy tells the story of the trials and tribulations of the ill-starred Janice Beard as she sets out into the world to earn money that might bring her agoraphobic mother out of both the house and her post-natal, post-mortem depression. The delightful Janice Beard debuts on DVD November 11 for the suggested retail price of $24.98.

DVD Extra Features
The digitally mastered Janice Beard DVD features the original theatrical trailer, theatrical EPK, cast bios, and motion menus, and is presented in 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround Sound.

Janice Beard Synopsis
When Janice’s (Walsh) father dies of a heart attack during her birth, her mother plunges into a post-natal, post-mortem agoraphobic depression that endures for 23 years. As Janice grows up on public assistance she makes it her goal in life to entertain her mother with outlandish and fanciful tales of the outside world. As an adult she studies medical journals to find a cure for her house bound mother's ills, eventually heading to London with minimal secretarial skills determined to earn the cash to pay for treatment.

Still inhabiting an elaborate fantasy world that now features her dazzling artistic and professional achievements, Janice concocts an impressive resume and plunges into the work force, with disastrous results. In exchange for her promise to be as normal as possible, a childhood friend gets Janice a job in the typing pool of a car-manufacturing firm. Struggling to fit in she eventually even wins over the glam but nasty man trap-head of the secretarial pool (Kensit). As the company gears up for the launch of a new model, Janice finds what she thinks is love with the mail room boy Sean (Ifans) but in fact has becomes a pawn in an industrial espionage scheme that could ruin the company.

Can little Janice cure her mother, save the company and find true love in the bargain?
