Film Synopsis: After his ex-girlfriend disappears, Sidney, a glam rock dilettante, is forced to look after his 11-year-old son full-time. His ‘cool dad’ facade quickly falls apart and his life goes into full tailspin as he struggles to let go of his rock-and-roll lifestyle.
Filmmaker Statement: “I moved to the eastside of Los Angeles ten years ago. I didn’t own a car for most of the last decade and, yes, I actually walked in LA. Walking gave me a great chance to see the hidden neighborhoods away from the main roads and get to know interesting people outside the film industry. Like Charles Bukowski, I am inspired by this bittersweet and seedy side of town…. (Hunky Dory is) a tale about a man who walks in LA, struggling with the fear of mediocrity and raising a child while coming-of-age himself. “
Off to the Films says “(Hunky Dory) makes you analyze your way of thinking. This film causes the viewer to separate themselves from their own reality, and become engulfed in someone else’s.” Please note: Hunky Dory is intended for adult audiences only.
