NOMINEE · DRAMATIC GRAND JURY PRIZE · SUNDANCE

“This sweet and sour coming-of-age comedy smashed into Sundance with anarchy on its mind and a kickass soundtrack on its turntable. The bad boy-meets-good girl setup has been fodder for cinema for aeons, so it was about time someone took a chainsaw to the status quo” – Ant Timpson, NZFF

Patty is a sheltered high schooler, living the middle American suburban nightmare. Naïve and outcast, she’s bullied in school, fights with her brother Kevin and is obsessed with punk rock band, Psyops. Enter Simon. Early 20s. Anarchist. Punk rocker. Pharmaceutical guinea pig cheque-casher. A walking snarl, he starts a lot of fights he can’t finish, and makes a career out of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. And dealing drugs.

When these two outcasts cross paths, their radically different personalities strike an unusual chord between music and chaos. Set to the beat of brilliant original songs, Dinner in America is an empowering wild ride, destined to be a festival favourite.
