Welcome to the Dollhouse collides with Napoleon Dynamite and Buffalo '66—with an added dose of the endlessly quotable dialogue of Heathers—in Dinner in America - a DIY love letter to being authentically yourself, finding your voice, and being punk AF.
In a dreary Midwestern suburb, aggro punk rocker Simon 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 provides him a place to lay low. As the two embark on a series of misadventures, they begin to realize they have a lot more in common than they first expected...
Skillfully directed by Adam Rehmeier, produced by Ben Stiller and Ross Putman and set to the beat of brilliant original songs, Dinner in America is an empowering and wild ride through the places and people of suburbia — in all their peculiar and chaotic forms.
Plot summary from IMDb: An on-the-lam punk rocker and a young woman obsessed with his band unexpectedly fall in love and go on an epic journey together through America's decaying Midwestern suburbs.
