Dinner In America hits ARROW today!

ARROW is thrilled to announce that it will release award-winning indie festival favourite Dinner In America, produced by Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Films and starring Kyle Gallner (Jennifer’s Body, The Cleansing Hour) and Emily Skeggs (The Miseducation of Cameron Post, Mile 22), streaming on ARROW and available to buy or rent on all digital platforms in the UK from 1st June 2021.

Set to the beat of brilliant original songs, Dinner in America is an empowering wild ride through the places and people of suburbia — in all their peculiar and chaotic forms. Welcome to the Dollhouse collides with Napoleon Dynamite – with an added dose of the endlessly quotable dialogue of Heathers – Dinner in America is a DIY love letter to being authentically yourself, finding your voice, and being punk AF. Directed by Adam Rehmeier (Jonas, The Bunny Game) it is produced by Ben Stiller (Zoolander, Tropic Thunder) and Ross Putman (Plus One, The Violent Heart), as well as Nicholas Weinstock, David Hunter, John Covert and Sam Slater.

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…

Director Adam Rehmeier said: “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. I grew up playing in bands and spent the better part of two decades 4-tracking in a series of basements, apartments, and lockouts. The DIY ethic instilled through those experiences has informed my creative process and approach to filmmaking. DINNER IN AMERICA represents the first film in which I’ve been able to showcase that spirit within a narrative.”

“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. When these two cross paths, 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.”

DINNER IN AMERICA is streaming on ARROW and available to buy or rent on all digital platforms in the UK from 1st June 2021.
