Dinner in America

This off-the-wall, daring comedy follows an unconventional couple, Simon and Patty, as they embark on a series of misadventures in a dreary Midwestern suburb. They first meet when the eccentric Patty offers on-the-run punk rocker Simon a safe spot to hide after a close call with the police over a bout of arson. The two misfits soon find they have a lot more in common than they first expected, discovering each other through the power of music and chaos. Set to the beat of brilliant original songs, this feature film offers an empowering and wild ride through the places and people of suburbia—in all their peculiar forms. Discussion with director Adam Rehmeier, and actors Emily Skeggs and Kyle Gallner, moderated by Ty Cooper (VAFF) to follow.
