Tribeca Film Festival Celebrates Dog Years

Tribeca Film Festival Celebrates Dog Years

Thousands of individuals all across Manhattan are enjoying the city’s biggest film festival. At the glorious celebration for Dog Years the appreciation for the art was just as big.

On April 22nd, at the official after party, sponsored by EFFEN® Vodka, guests Clarke Duke, Kathleen Nolan, Al Knox, Juston Street and Adam Rifkin (Director) honored the premiere of the film at the beautiful venue Griffin Pop-Up.

The movie focuses on Vic Edwards (Burt Reynolds), who was one of the biggest movie stars in the world at one point. With his Hollywood glory a distant memory, the now-octogenarian Vic begins reassessing his life with the passing of his beloved dog and the arrival of an invitation to receive a lifetime achievement award from the (fictional) International Nashville Film Festival.

Intrigued by the promise of long-lost adulation, Vic accepts the offer. The festival, however, turns out to be very different from the glitz and glamour affair he expected, personified by his foul-mouthed, text-obsessed, punkish escort/driver for the weekend, Lil (Modern Family’s Ariel Winter). Humiliated but motivated to make the most of his time in his home state of Tennessee, Vic and a reluctant Lil take off for Knoxville on a road trip neither will soon forget.

Utilizing archival footage from Reynold’s real-life filmography, and featuring sterling lead performances from the rakish icon and Winter, Adam Rifkin’s Dog Years is a funny and ultimately touching cross-generational comedy.
