6 Dynamic Laws for Success

Directed by Gregory Bayne
Narrative Feature
Drama
U.S.A. | 92 min | 2017
Rated PG-13

Upon discovering a coded message in the self help book 6 Dynamic Laws for Success (In Life, Love & Money) which purportedly reveals the location of $2.4 million missing from a bank robbery gone bad, a demoralized ex-used car salesman sets out on a quest to find the money and remake himself in the process. However, he soon discovers he’s not the only one after the cash, and that the road to riches and self-improvement is littered with irate ex-wives, litigious fiancés, household calamities, accidental murders, and love at first sight.

Filmed in Idaho, 6 Dynamic Laws for Success in Life, Love & Money draws inspiration from the golden age of film noir, screwball comedies, and seminal self-improvement books like Think and Grow Rich and How to Win Friends and Influence People to weave its farcical tale. Shot in stunning black & white, the film celebrates classic cinema while offering a fresh, original comic noir.
