DEAN is an indie comedy-drama film written and directed by Comedian Demetri Martin, starring himself alongside Kevin Kline. The film premiered at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival where it won Best Narrative Feature.
Dean (Martin) is an illustrator whose unwillingness to deal with the recent death of his mother means escaping his hometown of New York for an interview with an ad agency in Los Angeles. His retired engineer dad Robert (Kline) takes a more regimented approach to grief, including putting the family home up for sale. Both father and son set out on their own paths to find a new normal as unexpected circumstances and potential new love interests threaten to thwart all plans.
