We met up with the cast of “Amanda and Jack Go Glamping” at the world premiere of the film at the 2017 Austin Film Festival. We spoke with Nicole Elliot, Gustavo Gomez, Chris Carpenter, David Arquette and Writer/Director Brandon Dickerson.
Dickerson spoke with us about the inspiration for the film that is based on a blog he started called, “Stories About My Ass” that was about his experience growing up at Green Acres. And if that’s not the best name for a blog I don’t know what is! You know this movie is going to be good just by that alone. I also bonded with Gomez over the fact that we both love the best taco stand in Austin located on Riverside (in front of the Bingo place). There’s a lot of fun in this interview so check it out!
About “Amanda and Jack Go Glamping”
With his marriage on rocky ground, dejected one-hit author Jack Spencer (David Arquette) agrees to go “glamping” with his wife, Amanda (Amy Acker), in search of a spark. When they realize they’ve been double booked with honeymooning hipsters and the handsome, eco-friendly landowner, Nate (Adan Canto), enters the picture, a romantic getaway turns into a group ordeal. Jack must learn to get over himself as he dives deep off the grid into a comedic exploration of love, failure, and relevance with some help from miniature donkeys and the sage wisdom of local Jude (Academy Award® nominee June Squibb).
“Amanda and Jack Go Glamping” opens in theaters and VOD on November 10.
