As Jello Biafra once said, “A good punk rock song will make you laugh, make you think, and make you mad — hopefully all at the same time.” Directors Joe Syracuse and Lisa Addario certainly feel the same way about making movies. While the idea for the film came 12 years prior, DEAR DICTATOR’s messages about politics and society are just as relevant now as they were then, all in this playful coming-of-age story.
When political turmoil forces a British-Caribbean dictator (Michael Caine) to flee his island nation, he seeks refuge with his pen pal, a rebellious teenage girl (Odeya Rush) in suburban America, and teaches her how to start a revolution and overthrow the “mean girls” in her high school.
DEAR DICTATOR has a run time of approximately 90 minutes and is NR.
