Everyone wants their 15 minutes of fame, but not necessarily to share those precious moments in the spotlight with their parents.
That’s the case for Katelyn (Meredith Hagner), whose father Dave (Matt Walsh) finds online fame while she searches for stardom to save her from their small-town life in Liberty, N.Y.
Dave’s outburst at a townhall meeting lands on YouTube, and thanks to a group of hipsters and the Internet’s penchant for enjoying people who act crazy, Dave puts Liberty into the limelight and completely upends the town’s way of life.
Hits is David Cross’ directorial debut and also stars Wyatt Cenac, David Koechner, and Jason Ritter. The film currently has no theatrical release date, but did premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival.
