Dueling opposite personality traits isn’t an easy task for many people, even seemingly normal young adults. The nihilistic point of view of the struggling protagonist, Luke, in the upcoming thriller, ‘Daniel Isn’t Real,’ expresses the desperate internal conflict between the lead character and his imaginary friend, the title character. That clash shows the danger of the reality of Luke contending with his desperate internal conflict.

Samuel Goldwyn Films will release the highly anticipated horror movie in theaters, as well as on digital and On Demand, on Friday, December 6. The feature was co-written by Brian DeLeeuw and Adam Egypt Mortimer, who also directed the drama. In addition to Robbins, ‘Daniel Isn’t Real’ also stars Patrick Schwarzenegger in the title role, as well as Sasha Lane, Hannah Marks and Mary Stuart Masterson.
