Just in time for Father’s day Magnolia Pictures has released a red band trailer for writer/director Bobcat Goldthwait’s (yes that Bobcat Goldthwait) upcoming dark comedy World’s Greatest Dad.
The film was presented at this years Sundance Festival and stars Robin Williams, Alexie Gilmore, and Henry Simmons.
In World’s Greatest Dad, Lance Clayton (Robin Williams) discovers that what he covets most in life may not be what makes him happy, and being lonely is not necessarily the same as being alone. Lance is a high school poetry teacher who dreams of becoming a rich and famous writer. A single father, he tries desperately to connect with his teenage son, Kyle (Daryl Sabara), an insolent, hormone-raging smartass who defies his dad at every turn. Lance exercises his own hormones with Claire (Alexie Gilmore), a painfully adorable art teacher who may have her eyes on a bigger prize. After a freak accident, Lance suddenly faces both the worst tragedy of his life, and the greatest opportunity. Determined to make lemonade from life’s lemons, Lance treads a path that could land him everything he’s ever dreamed of, as long as he can live with the knowledge of how he got there.
