About the Movie
In this unique and inventive indie drama, estranged siblings Russell, Jane and their adopted brother Alex, return home to tend to the remains of their recently deceased father. When it becomes clear that none of the family wants to keep the ashes, the three reluctantly come together to achieve a proper goodbye whether they want it or not. A FilmBuff Presentation.
Touching, quirky film
I was a Kickstarter backer and am so glad I supported this film. I highly recommend it. Dead Dad tells a touching story with lovable, realistic, relatable characters. Each scene was acted and filmed with tangible care — the filmmakers’ and actors’ personal connection to the story and film make the subject matter seem all the more raw and real.
A solid piece of work, well-performed
Full disclosure: I found this film because I know somebody who worked on it. I'm happy to report that I was not disappointed in the least by the final product. This is a solid first feature by Ken J. Adachi with fine performances by the three leads. Yes, there are some cliche youth-angst montages and the script would have been helped by a bit more plot content, but overall I was engaged and feel that it was 90 minutes very well spent. Recommended!
I absolutely loved this film. Such good acting and writing, fantastic.
