Simon is a small-time drug dealer, a clever rebel and an arrogant punk. With such personality, he has no issues with getting on track. At least on short distances. Considering that the lad already has an arrest warrant issued against himself, his resourcefulness is much more impressive. Patty, however, is a mocked girl with quite a messy life, who dreams of going to a punk rock concert (though, a normal family could come in useful too). What do these two have in common? Solely that they live in the same city. But when their paths unexpectedly cross, a chemistry between them begins to develop – still, only with trace amounts of drugs! The rest is just a pure love for music, a fair dose of madness running through their veins, and an internal need to bring a little bit of happiness into this miserable, as reproductive organs, suburb.
“Dinner in America” is a loud, crude, and sometimes even off-putting movie about social outcasts that slowly changes into a very warm and inviting story about self-discovery. Adam Rehmeier reminds us that the greatest freedom is being yourself and we couldn’t care less about other people’s remarks (beating up some punks could also be therapeutic, but we do not approve doing so!). Besides, the director mocks twisted American suburbs and shows that a man is not always who he seems to be at a first glance. What adds charm to this story is the authentic and brilliant acting duo of Kyle Gallner and Emily Skeggs.
