The September premiere event will feature the debut of “American Dresser” for one show, one night only on Monday, Sept. 17, 7 p.m. Peter Travers will host and introduce the film via satellite; and the Q&A following the film will feature the stars of the film Tom Berenger, Keith David and Gina Gershon, plus others.
Life is a ride … one mile at a time
“American Dresser” follows John Moore (Tom Berenger), a hard-edged Vietnam veteran who is recently widowed and estranged from his adult daughters.
After discovering a decades-old secret his wife kept for years, John finds himself at a crossroads and decides to confront the mistakes of his past by fulfilling a lifelong dream. He fixes up his American Dresser motorcycle and sets out on a cross-country road trip with his best friend, Charlie (Keith David).
They hit the highway, exploring new territories, meeting a series of offbeat characters, and together they learn that life is about moving forward, one mile at a time.
“American Dresser” also stars Penelope Ann Miller, Bruce Dern, Jeff Fahey, Katherine Narducci and Gina Gershon. Billy Joel is a consulting producer on the film that features an original title song by ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons and Tim Montana.
Hosted by Peter Travers via satellite, the program also features a Q&A with Tom Berenger, Keith David and Gina Gershon and others.
