Randall Park’s feature film directorial debut, “Shortcomings,” will be released in theaters on Aug. 4.
The movie made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and it is scheduled to make its New York debut at the Tribeca Festival next month.
Starring Justin H. Min, Sherry Cola and Ally Maki, “Shortcomings” is adapted from the award-winning graphic novel of the same name by Adrian Tomine, who also serves as an executive producer.

Along with his best friend Alice (Cola), a queer graduate student with a dating problem, Ben explores his true desires and goals.
