Arrow has announced that it will release indie festival favourite Dinner In America, produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films and starring Kyle Gallner and Emily Skeggs.
“Dinner in America is my love letter to the early 90s punk scene in Lincoln, Nebraska that served as the backdrop for my formative years.” – Director Adam Rehmeier
In a dreary Midwestern suburb, aggro punk rocker Simon (Kyle Gallner) finds himself on the run again after a bout of arson and a close call with the police. A chance encounter with the spirited and socially awkward Patty (Emily Skeggs) provides him a place to lay low.
As the two embark on a series of misadventures, they begin to realise they have a lot more in common than they first expected…
Directed by Adam Rehmeier it is produced by Ben Stiller and Ross Putman as well as Nicholas Weinstock, David Hunter, John Covert and Sam Slater.
“At its heart, the film is an underdog love story about two very different characters, each marginalized misfits in their own right: Patty, a socially awkward, sheltered 20- year-old escaping her banal existence through punk music; Simon, a snarling anarchist and seemingly toxic punk seeking refuge from the law.
“Their radically different personalities make them an unlikely duo. They are thrust together, at first by circumstance and necessity, but in short order they begin to inspire one another. An organic intimacy unfolds, eventually revealing a connection of which neither is initially aware they share.” – Director Adam Rehmeier
Dinner in America streaming on ARROW and available to buy or rent on all digital platforms in the UK from 1st June www.ARROW-Player.com
