Exclusive Clip from DAYDREAM NATION Starring Kat Dennings and Josh Lucas

     April 28, 2011

We’ve been sent an exclusive clip from the upcoming film Daydream Nation.  The story centers on a young woman (Kat Dennigns) who moves to a small town and strikes up a romance with both her teacher Barry (Josh Lucas) and her troubled classmate (Reece Thompson).  In the clip, Barry, frustrated with the papers his high-school students have turned in, asks them to write a three page essay on the historical or religious figure they most admire.  Because if there’s anyone teenagers admire, it’s historical and religious figures.

Hit the jump to check out the clip.  Daydream Nation opens in select theaters on May 6th.  If you’re not near one of those select theaters, you still won’t have to wait long to see it.  The movie hits DVD and Blu-ray on May 17th.

Here’s the official synopsis for Daydream Nation:

Seventeen-year-old Caroline Wexler (Dennings, Thor, Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist,) is facing a teenager’s nightmare: her widowed father has moved them from the big city to a tiny town in the middle of nowhere.  When Caroline realizes she has nothing in common with the burnout losers in her new school she pursues the one person with who excites her interest – her handsome young teacher, Mr. Anderson (Lucas, Sweet Home Alabama).  A bizarre love triangle ensues between Caroline, Mr. Anderson, and a sweet, but troubled classmate (Reece Thompson, Dream Catcher).  Featuring a hit indie soundtrack in this mash-up of the bizarre and the beautiful, Daydream Nation is a coming-of-age story for the 21st century.

Written and directed by Michael Goldbach, Daydream Nation is filled with wry and wicked observations about teen angst and small town ennui, with plenty of unexpected twists and turns that will have you guessing how it will end and what it all means.
