The Spoils is a deeply personal and probing comedy where nobody likes "Ben" (Jesse Eisenberg). "Ben" doesn’t even like "Ben." He's been kicked out of grad school, lives off his parents’ money, and bullies everyone in his life, including his roommate "Kalyan" (Kunal Nayyar), an earnest Nepalese immigrant. When "Ben" discovers that his grade school crush is marrying a straight-laced banker, he sets out to destroy their relationship and win her back.
The Spoils, is written by Jesse Eisenberg, directed by Scott Elliott and featurs Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network), Kunal Nayyar (The Big Bang Theory), Erin Darke (Still Alice), Annapurna Sriram (The Happiest Song Plays Last), and Michael Zegen (Boardwalk Empire).
