“Bob’s New Suit,” the debut film from writer/director Alan Howard, will be out on DVD March 26. The Breaking Glass Pictures character-driven film stars Hunter S. Bodine (“The Casserole Club”), model/actress Jenny Shimizu (Bravo’s “Make Me a Supermodel,” “Dante’s Cove”), John Bennett Perry (“Fools Rush In” with son Matthew Perry, “Veronica Mars”), Charlie Babcock (“Desperate Housewives”) and Shay Astar (“The Lost,” “3rd Rock from the Sun”).
“Bob’s New Suit” is described as a “bright fable contemplating the legacy of the 1960’s cultural wars in a contemporary working-class family facing the battle of the sexes, gender identity, radical politics, and a threatened economy.”
“The Goodlows are a typical American family. Bob (Bodine) is a landscape gardener and handyman. His dad Buster (Perry), an ex-aerospace worker with a secret past, is now unemployed and suffering from heart failure. Sister Stephanie (Astar) does the books for her girlfriend Marlena (Shimizu)’s hair salon and holds a secret that’s just bursting to come out. Mother Polly helps with the finances by selling antique dolls on eBay. When Bob proposes to his girlfriend Jenny and his “too cool” cousin George (Babcock) proposes a get-rich quick scheme, a series of events unfold which changes their lives forever.”
“Bob’s New Suit” will be priced at $24.99.
