Institute History

  • 2017 Sundance Film Festival


Freshly fired and uprooted from his suburban Chicago lifestyle, Bennett struggles to adapt to the idiosyncrasies of Southern California living, where he and his wife Julie are faced with radically different attitudes towards parenting. As a stay-at-home dad whose wife is the family breadwinner, Bennett’s masculinity and self-worth are put to the test when he is forced to take the kids on a series of playdates inside the elitist culture of Silicon Beach.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
