UPDATE: Demetri Will be playing NYC’s Gramercy Theater in October.
Brainy comedian Demetri Martin wrote, directed and stars in Dean, a film which won Best Narrative Feature at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival, and will open in theaters on June 2. Here’s the synopsis:
Writer/Director/Comedian Demetri Martin stars alongside Academy Award winner Kevin Kline in this comedic and heartfelt tale about a father and son coming to terms with love, loss and everything in between. Dean (Martin) is an illustrator whose unwillingness to deal with the recent death of his mother means escaping his hometown of New York for an interview with an ad agency in Los Angeles. His retired engineer dad Robert (Kline) takes a more regimented approach to grief, including putting the family home up for sale. Both father and son set out on their own paths to find a new normal as unexpected circumstances and potential new love interests threaten to thwart all plans.
You can watch the trailer for Dean, which bears Martin’s distinct style almost immediately, below.
You can also catch Demetri Martin on his standup tour which hits Long Island’s The Paramount on June 8 and Port Chester’s The Capitol Theater on June 9. Tickets for The Paramount and the Cap go on sale Friday, March 17 at 10 AM with a Music Geeks presale for Paramount starting Wednesday (3/15) at 10 AM (password is MUSICGEEKS).
