FRIDAY, March 17, 9:15 PM - Chilmark Community Center

 
 

Academy Award-winning actor Kevin Kline joins comedian, actor, writer, and director Demetri Martin in this hilarious father and son romp about coming to terms with loss. Martin plays an aimless illustrator and Kline his methodical engineer dad. Though their approach to grief is opposite, they can’t help but run parallel. When two dynamic women enter their lives, played by Mary Steenburgen and Gillian Jacobs, both men struggle, in their own way, with loving again. Martin’s signature cartoons provide observational commentary throughout the story, creating an incredibly original take on the coming-of-age romantic comedy genre.

“It manages the near impossible task of breathing new life into a well-worn genre, balancing humor and pathos with an incredibly deft touch, and offering a unique perspective on the way we process loss.”
- Tribeca Film Festival
