Nick Offerman and Kiersey Clemons star in this heartfelt comedy about the rift that develops between a father and his college-bound daughter when they start a band together and find unexpected success, only for the father to have second thoughts about letting his daughter go. A Sundance favorite, it also co-stars Toni Collette — with critics calling it a sweet and earnest story strengthened by a pair of excellent performances at its center.
