The tagline for Bud Clayman, Glenn Holsten, and Scott Johnston‘s OC87 sure doesn’t sound like a lot of fun – the film is billed as “the Obsessive Compulsive, Major Depression, Bipolar, Asperger’s Movie,” which might just drive away scads of potential moviegoers. And yet…

The film centers on Clayman’s struggle with OCD and Asperger’s and how it effects his long-held dreams of becoming a filmmaker. Thirty years after being waylaid from his cinematic aspirations, Clayman decides to finally make a movie – and, appropriately enough, that movie is about his battles with his illnesses. Funny how that works out. While OC87’s tagline doesn’t sound particularly feel-good, Clayman’s story is quite inspirational and, thanks to an exclusive clip from the film, it looks like the film’s makers have approached the story with just enough humor and grit to make it appealing to a large audience.

After the break, find out what makes Clayman nervous (well, one thing that makes him nervous), and see where you can check out OC87 later this month and on through the summer.

OC87 opens in New York City on May 25th, with a Los Angeles release following on June 8th. Check out more about the film at its official website.
