When you were seventeen, did your widowed father move to a small town, where – out of boredom – you began a dramatic love triangle with a teacher at your high school and a stoner classmate? If so, then you'll identify with Caroline Wexler, the character played by Kat Dennings in Daydream Nation. Josh Lucas portrays the teacher, while the stoner classmate is played by Reece Thompson, who starred in woefully underrated 2007 comedy-drama Rocket Science. Check out all the dark comedy and abundant drama in the Daydream Nation trailer, courtesy of Hulu.
Daydream Nation is the feature directorial debut of Michael Goldbach, who also wrote the screenplay. In addition to Kat Dennings, Reece Thompson, and Josh Lucas, the film also stars Rachel Blanchard and Andie MacDowell. It has a limited theatrical run starting May 6th, followed by a Blu Ray and DVD street date of May 17th. Coincidentally, May 6th also sees the release of Marvel's Thor, in which Dennings plays a supporting role.
