(plus, bonus post-film interviews with cast, to be recorded April 17th)
16 year old Sebastian has spent a sheltered life with his grandmother (Academy Award Winner, Ellen Burstyn) in their geodesic dome home where she raises him on the futurist teachings of her former mentor, R. Buckminster Fuller. She also operates the home as a tourist attraction, and – when a tour group passes through – the group’s bible-thumping leader (an “outstanding” Nick Offerman) senses the young man’s loneliness and employs mildly devious methods to ensure that the boy – and his own son, Jared, a tougher, punk-obsessed teen – keep in touch. Though Sebastian is also shyly attracted to Jared’s belligerent older sister, Meredith (a “revelatory” Maude Apatow), his chief mission is to learn as much as he can about this strange and wonderful thing called punk. Ultimately, however, he must decide if he wants to become the next R. Buckminster Fuller, the next Sid Vicious, or something else entirely. Asa Butterfield – Martin Scorsese’s Hugo, as well as The Boy in the Striped Pajamas – stars with the equally terrific Alex Wolff, known for having portrayed everything from the young nerd version of Dwayne Johnson’s character in the new Jumanji movie, to the younger of the two Boston Marathon bombers in 2016’s Patriots Game.
