international premiere

Thomas Haden Church and Dianna Agron in a meditative story about facing loneliness, worry about parents getting old and a melancholic longing for the simplicity of childhood. The director of the great Blue Jay now presents a film about a different kind of love. Acidman premiered at the Tribeca Festival.

Thomas Haden Church is one of cinema’s most underrated actors. (...) In the film, Dianna Agron stars as Maggie, the beleaguered daughter of Church’s character. Maggie lost touch with her father years ago following a mysterious falling out. What is more peculiar is why, after all this time, she’s decided to track him down by traveling over 2,000 miles toward his secluded neck of the woods.
