Starring Kat Dennings, Josh Lucas, Andie McDowell, and Reece Thompson, Daydream Nation is a coming of age story with a twist, following what happens when a young, smart city girl finds herself in a small town. Garnering comparisons to Juno and Donnie Darko, and falling somewhere in between on the spectrum of youthful angst, Daydream Nation (also the name of a Sonic Youth Album) has an amazing soundtrack released by Last Gang records, featuring Stars, Emily Haines, Devendra Banhart, Lou Reed, and more.
SDTC writer and Silver Screen minx Katie Boland plays Jenny. She’s incredibly proud of the final product, and her friend, director Michael Goldbach. The film, says Katie, is “not your typical teen coming of age story. It says a lot about life and love and loss and relationships. It deals with issues that a lot of teenagers deal with, but it’s not just a teen film.”
The film opens tomorrow, April 15th, and is a must-see for Canadian pop culture fans. “It would really appeal to cultured, intelligent young women. It would appeal to everybody, because all the characters are accessible,” Katie tells us. Be there or be square!
