Nat (Christopher Walken, Oscar® winner, The Deer Hunter) is an eccentric conman – a hustler content with a life of schemes and underhanded deals. He lacks one thing: a reconciliation with his son, Flynn (Alessandro Nivola, Jurassic Park III), who has ceased trusting his father long ago. But Nat’s time is growing short: he has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. True to form, Nat cons Flynn into joining him in a cross country journey to an experimental medical facility. Short on money, but not on imagination, the two realize that to reach their destination they can spend no more than $5 A Day. They come up with increasingly ridiculous schemes to keep within their budget - but there is a distance of emotion as well as miles to cover. Are they on the path towards a father-son reunion?
With a sparkling cast that includes Sharon Stone (Emmy® award winner, “The Practice”, Casino), Amanda Peet (Syriana, 2012), Peter Coyote (Erin Brokovich, “Deadwood”) and Dean Cain (Out of Time, Rat Race), $5 A Day is a comedy rich in character and charm. It is a happy reminder that relationships may take their toll, but what we get in return is priceless.
