Dummy

Directed by Greg Pritikin

USA | 91 minutes | 2002

Oscar-winner Adrien Brody stars in this delightful romantic comedy as a loveable loser who finds his inner voice by becoming a ventriloquist. Living with his parents and his caustic sister, tongue-tied Steven can't hold a conversation to save his life — until he sits a wooden dummy on his knee. Others find this kind of creepy, but Steven parlays his newfound voice into a date with his pretty lady at the unemployment office (Vera Farmiga). Supported by an old friend (Milla Jovovich) and a new love, Steven learns it's never too late to believe in yourself if someone believes in you.
