The Foreigner

By Larry Shue

Directed by Jerri Lee Young

Charlie Baker is a socially phobic Englishman marooned by his friend Froggy in a Georgia fishing lodge. When people at the lodge try to talk to Charlie, he cannot find words due to his terrible shyness. To help Charlie avoid interactions with the other guests, Froggy claims that Charlie cannot talk because he is from an exotic country and does not understand English. The locals assume Charlie does not comprehend them and speak freely in front of him. The unintended consequences are not only uproarious but lead Charlie to uncover a scheme that puts him and his fellow guests in danger.
