An outspoken punk band singer, who hides his identity behind a mask and is persecuted by the police for his drug dealing, meets a naive young woman who is crazy about him. Together they embark on a journey of personal insurgence, set against the backdrop of the utterly stagnant American suburbia.


USA | 2020 | COLOR | DCP | 106' | ENGLISH

A foulmouthed rebel without a cause, a masked singer in a punk band closely attached to drugs, meets a naive teenage girl trapped in American Midwest suburbia who, unknowingly, loves him and his music.

A smart, ingeniously tailored punk homage to the cinema of Cox, Solondz and, in a sense, John Hughes. Kerosene-fuelled ‘Dinner in America’, sweeps over the coming-of-age pattern, waves goodbye to anything politically correct, satirizes the sacred family canon and takes a deep bow to female empowerment without ever feeling remotely conformist. A cult-certain delight and two powerhouse performances for a dirty neoromantic old school film treat. I.D.
