We like to talk about, promote, and review engaging films on fatherhood – that’s why we wanted to alert you to a new film that should be on your radar: The Other F Word directed by Andrea Blaugrund Nevins. For those dudes with dirty minds, “F” stands for “Fatherhood” in this case, although the dads featured in the movie are foul mouthed. Here is an excerpt from the film’s website so you can understand what makes this movie unique:
This revealing and touching film asks what happens when a generation’s ultimate anti-authoritarians – punk rockers – become society’s ultimate authorities – dads. With a large chorus of punk rock’s leading men – Blink-182’s Mark Hoppus, Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Rise Against’s Tim McIlrath – THE OTHER F WORD follows Jim Lindberg, a 20-year veteran of the skate punk band Pennywise, on his hysterical and moving journey from belting his band’s anthem ”F–k Authority,” to embracing his ultimately authoritarian role in mid-life: fatherhood.
Other dads featured in the film include skater Tony Hawk, Art Alexakis (Everclear), Mark Mothersbaugh (Devo), Tony Adolescent (The Adolescents), Fat Mike (NOFX), Lars Frederiksen (Rancid), and many others.
Variety magazine said “The Other F Word is a raucous, eye-opening, sad and unexpectedly wise look at veteran punk rockers as they adapt to the challenges of fatherhood.” The film is set to make it’s theater debut in NYC on November 2! Stay tuned for our film review in the next few weeks.
