Plot: David Schwimmer stars as DUANE HOPWOOD, a down-on-his-luck divorced father who works the night shift as a pit boss at Caesars Palace in Atlantic City. Heartsick about the demise of his marriage to Linda (Janeane Garofolo), Duane does nothing much in his daily life but work and drink. When his visitation rights are threatened after hes caught driving while intoxicated with his daughter in the backseat, Duane confronts the realization that the time has come to get his life back on track before he loses everything. A moving and humorous look at the limits of unconditional love, what defines a family, and how were all responsible for our own happiness, DUANE HOPWOOD was written and directed by Matt Mulhern.

Set in the cold, windswept world of an Atlantic City November, DUANE HOPWOOD also stars Judah Friedlander as Anthony, a lonely slot machine repairman who dreams of comedy stardom, and Susan Lynch as Gina, a bartender who befriends Duane. Rich in the details of daily life, wistful and wise, DUANE HOPWOOD is the story of a man who comes back from the brink, and is finally able to celebrate life in all its imperfections.
