One of the reasons I absolutely loved this movie is I knew nothing walking in. I’d heard from Devin at CHUD that it was great and I needed to see it, but all I knew was “World’s Greatest Dad” starred Robin Williams as a dad having problems with his son. That’s it. I didn’t know Bobcat directed it, and I didn’t know if it was a comedy or a drama.
And that’s one of the reasons why Sundance is so great. You see so many movies in such a short span of time that you often don’t plan for what ends up being your favorite film.
