Set in the cold, windswept world of an Atlantic City in November, David Schwimmer stars as Duane Hopwood, a divorced father who works the night shift as a pit boss at the casino, Caesars Palace. Heartsick about the demise of his marriage to Linda (Janeane Garofolo), Duane does nothing much in his daily life but work and drink. Caught driving while intoxicated with his daughter in the backseat, his visitation rights are threatened. Duane confronts the realization that the time has come to get his life back on track. So with the help of his friend Anthony (Judah Friedlander), a fledgling, stand-up comedian, his kind neighbor Fred (Dick Cavett) and Gina (Susan Lynch), a bartender who befriends him, he attempts to turn his life around before he loses everything.
Rich in the details of daily life, wistful and wise, DUANE HOPWOOD is the story of a man who comes back from the brink, and is finally able to celebrate life in all its imperfections. A moving and humorous look at the limits of unconditional love, what defines a family, and how we're all responsible for our own happiness, DUANE HOPWOOD was written and directed by Matt Mulhern.
