On August 24, Image Entertainment presents $5 A Day, a story of a father and son struggling with the cost of rebuilding their relationship. Directed by Nigel Cole (Sundance Festival winner, Saving Grace) and featuring an award-winning cast, $5 A Day is an exuberant comedy – a joyous tour of the heart. Available at an SRP of $27.98 for the DVD and $29.98 for the Blu-ray, the film will also be available via digital download. Pre-book is July 27th.
Nat (Christopher Walken, Oscar® winner, The Deer Hunter) is an eccentric conman – a hustler content with a life of schemes and underhanded deals. He lacks one thing: a reconciliation with his son, Flynn (Alessandro Nivola, Jurassic Park III), who has ceased trusting his father long ago. But Nat’s time is growing short: he has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. True to form, Nat cons Flynn into joining him in a cross country journey to an experimental medical facility. Short on money, but not on imagination, the two realize that to reach their destination they can spend no more than $5 A Day. They come up with increasingly ridiculous schemes to keep within their budget - but there is a distance of emotion as well as miles to cover. Are they on the path towards a father-son reunion?
With a sparkling cast that includes Sharon Stone (Emmy® award winner, “The Practice”, Casino), Amanda Peet (Syriana, 2012), Peter Coyote (Erin Brokovich, “Deadwood”) and Dean Cain (Out of Time, Rat Race), $5 A Day is a comedy rich in character and charm. It is a happy reminder that relationships may take their toll, but what we get in return is priceless.

We are huge fans of Christopher Walken and we have seen most of the movies he is in, so we were excited to have received a copy of $5 A DAY to review. We thought that Christopher Walken was great in this film. He was really funny and we got some good laughs from the movie. Parts of the movie is a bit slow, but if you are a Christopher Walken fan, we would recommend it giving it a try.
