Shot mostly in Kamalakanthan’s native North Carolina, “Have a Nice Life” is a surreal stoner comedy and road movie, tracing the unlikely friendship between Jyothi, a lonely Indian housewife (played by the director’s mother, Jagathi Kamalakanthan), and Sophie, an unemployed stoner musician (Lucy Kaminsky). After hitting dead ends in life, the pair meet by chance at a pawn shop and soon find themselves on the run from the law, together on a wild American road trip from Durham, North Carolina to Montreal, Canada.
