“Band Aid is a charming and profoundly affecting film…Lister-Jones brings a sense of unadorned vulnerability to her performance as the anxious, fearful writer Anna and Pally shines in a nuanced performance as the jokester slacker suddenly responsible for more than he expected. The film is a true dramedy that wrestles with the darker, sadder elements of life in a frank, funny and deeply relatable way.”
-Los Angeles Times

“Band Aid works because Pally and Lister-Jones make their partnership feel genuine. We believe Anna and Ben are a couple, in part because of the performances, but mostly because Lister-Jones’ script resonates with truth. This is a surprisingly truthful, heartfelt film.”
-Roger Ebert

“Lister-Jones is at her best here, sending up our culture of performed perfection and hilariously distilling the way a fight about nothing can also, toxically, be a fight about everything.”
-The New York Post

“It’s warm and witty without feeling the least bit self-conscious, and you can feel the moments when Anna and Ben really start to hear each other. Every couple faces setbacks, but the sweet and sincere Band Aid…makes a convincing case that relationships are all about how you heal from them.”

“An exuberantly low-key charmer that uses a light, wry touch to tackle such weighty matters as artistic drive and inertia and the male-female divide, while offering new fuel for drummer jokes…with its talented cast of familiar faces, it’s sure to hit the right chords with indie-friendly audiences. ”
-Hollywood Reporter

“Lister-Jones’s indie pop tunes seem just believable enough as spontaneous amateur compositions while still being catchy, and the two characters are never more likable than when they’ve got instruments between them.”

“Band Aid ditches the sloganeering and carries us along with Anna and Ben’s rocky ride through mourning the loss of youth, with its absolutist faith that there’s a life code to be cracked, upon which a door will swing open to blissful ever after.”

Band Aid, the refreshingly raw, real, and hilarious feature debut from Zoe Lister-Jones, is the story of a couple, Anna (Zoe Lister-Jones) and Ben (Adam Pally), who can't stop fighting. Advised by their therapist to try and work through their grief unconventionally, they are reminded of their shared love of music. In a last-ditch effort to save their marriage, they decide to turn all their fights into song, and with the help of their neighbor Dave (Fred Armisen), they start a band. A story of love, loss, and rock and roll, Band Aid is a witty and perceptive view of modern love, with some seriously catchy pop hooks to boot.
