From new writer/director Michael Lynch comes “Dependent’s Day,” a witty rom-com reminiscent of early Judd Apatow films like “Superbad” and “Knocked Up.” The new feature stars Joe Burke, Benita Robledo (of “Teen Wolf” fame), Shannon Lucio (television hits”The OC” and “True Blood”) and Lisa
Ann Walter.

The film’s official synopsis reads“Claimed as a ‘dependent’ by his successful breadwinning girlfriend Alice, Cam struggles to prove himself as he stumbles through different jobs and  life’s obstacles in the hopes to live out his Hollywood dream and finally rise to the occasion. ‘Dependent’s Day’ is a hilarious, heartfelt, authentic relationship comedy about the adventures of being in love and making it work.”

The film premieres at the Cinequest Film Festival on March 5 at the Camera 12 Cinema. Check out our exclusive clip, which delves deeper into Cam and Alice’s strained relationship, above.
