A New Wave is a 2006 independently produced comedy film written and directed by Jason Carvey.

Plot[edit]

A would-be artist (Andrew Keegan) is working in a dead end job as a bank teller. At the urging of his movie-obsessed slacker roommate (John Krasinski), he agrees to be the inside man for a bank heist. While the heist plans are coordinated, the artist’s girlfriend (Lacey Chabert) arranges for him to have his first gallery exhibition. But when he tries to stop the heist, the plan is too far into motion to be halted.

Reception[edit]
