US, Feature Film, 2023, 100 min
In this irresistibly charming dramedy about a father’s love taken to the extreme, we meet stand-up comic Max Bernal (Bobby Cannavale of The Station Agent) and his mildly autistic 11-year-old son Ezra (William Fitzgerald). Having recently blown up his career and his marriage, Max is living with his eccentric father Stan (Robert De Niro) and is profoundly at odds with his soon-to-be ex-wife Jenna (Rose Byrne of Bridesmaids) about what’s best for this precious little boy. When Ezra is expelled from yet another public school, Max makes the controversial decision to take him in the middle of the night, embarking on a fabulously unpredictable cross-country odyssey.
Directed by Tony Goldwyn, Ezra also features Vera Farmiga, Rainn Wilson and Whoopi Goldberg
