Following his critically acclaimed performance in the Oscar-winning The Hurt Locker, Brian Geraghty delivers a mesmerising turn in Kyle Patrick Alvarez's provocative debut feature, winner of Best New International Feature at the Edinburgh Film Festival and multiple awards internationally.


On a road trip across middle-town America to promote his unpublished novel, Davy Mitchell’s life takes an unexpected turn when he is seduced into a phone sex relationship with a mysterious caller named Nicole. What starts out as a distraction soon becomes an obsession, as Davy’s feelings start to develop… 


Inspired by Davy Rothbart's autobiographical GQ magazine article "What Are You Wearing?", EASIER WITH PRACTICE is a heartfelt road movie exploring themes of alienation in contemporary society and the search for emotional connection.
