Alby Cutrera yearns for a time when life was carefree and action figures were twelve inches tall. When his wife insults him for being more of a playmate than a father to his young son, Alby heads for safety and tracks down his boyhood pal Elias whose memory of their younger days is considerably less rosy. They set out on a road trip to Diggityland, their favorite place as kids, but simpler times turn complicated as the two friends confront the land mines of their past. Journeying through the Oz of Central Florida, they encounter a cast of wounded roadside romantics - a disgruntled ex-theme park employee, a horny bartending clown, and a delusional mermaid - each one shedding light on the perils of not letting go. Full Grown Men is the bittersweet tale of a man who learns the hard way that the best years of his life may still lie ahead of him.Written by
I have seen this film throughout its many stages, and it has warmed my heart, and made me laugh each and every time...from its first screening to its World Premiere at Tribeca. With so many exceptional characters you are sure to find one who will wisk you away, back in time, to the land of play-grounds and double dog dares. The juxtaposition of two reunited friends lays a perfect path to examine the child inside and whether or not it can play nicely with your adult self. Whether you long for a second chance at being a kid, or thank God that you never have to go back...this is the film for you! A heartfelt story with beautiful cinematography, something for all.
I can't wait to see it in a theater near me! =) X,D, & B You Rock!!
