Dean, which is Demetri Martin’s directorial début, won the prize for Best Narrative Feature at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival.
It’s described as
“A comedy about loss, grief and the redemptive power of love. A freelance illustrator in New York suffers a quarter-life crisis and leaves his home for the west coast.”
Starring, in addition to Demetri Martin himself, are Mary Steenburgen, Kevin Kline, and Reid Scott.
And most significantly, one of the co-producers is Allison Rose Carter, who just happens to be my favourite East Coast niece.
The film’s release date is 2 June 2017.
