About Daddy Longlegs

After months of being alone, sad, busy, sidetracked, free, lofty, late and away from his kids, Lenny (Ronald Bronstein), 34 with graying frazzled hair, picks his kids up from school. Every year he spends of couple of weeks with his sons Sage (Sage Ranaldo), 9, and Frey (Frey Ranaldo), 7.  Lenny juggles his kids and everything else all within a midtown studio apartment in New York City.  He ultimately faces the choice of being their father of their friend with the idea that these two weeks must last 6 months. In these two weeks, a trip upstate, visitors from strange lands, a mother, a girlfriend, “magic” blankets, and complete lawlessness seem to take over their lives.  The film is a swan song to excuses and irresponsibility’s; to fatherhood and self-created experiences, and to what its like to be truly torn between being a child and being an adult.

Acclaim

"A lovely, hair-raising film."
A.O. Scott, The New York Times
"This beautiful, off-the-cuff comedy-drama recalls John Cassavetes' shaggiest, most honest work."
Joe Neumaier, The New York Daily News
