Synopsis

  • The darling of the Deauville American Film Festival, winner of a dozen Audience Choice Awards for Best Picture, and recipient of the HEARTLAND TRULY MOVING PICTURE AWARD, LIKE DANDELION DUST is, according to USA TODAY, "the next Blind Side". Directed by Jon Gunn (MY DATE WITH DREW, MERCY STREETS) from a screenplay by Academy Award® Nominated Stephen J. Rivele (ALI, NIXON), the film is based on the novel by New York Times best-selling author Karen Kingsbury.

    Joey lives an idyllic life with his parents on the coast of Florida. His days are spent playing with his cousins and sailing with his dad. It's a perfect life until the day they receive a disturbing phone call: a stranger's decision could tear Joey away from the comfort and security of the only home he's ever known.

    Starring Academy Award® Winner Mira Sorvino, Golden Globe® Nominee Barry Pepper, and introducing child actor, Maxwell Perry Cotton, Like Dandelion Dust is the story of one family determined to keep the son they love, and another determined to begin a new life, the life they've always dreamed. Joey's future rests in their hands and someone must make the bravest decision of their life.
