Exclusive: Dinner in America’s Lead Actress Emily Skeggs Co-Wrote the Film’s Watermelon Song

May 30, 2022

As the trailer for the film suggests, Dinner in America provides an unflinching look at the decaying suburbs of Midwestern America. Written, directed, and edited by Adam Carter Rehmeier, the film tells an unconventional love story between Simon (Kyle Gallner), a punk rock singer on the run from the police, and Patty (Emily Skeggs), an off-beat young woman who is obsessed with his band. It premiered at Sundance Film Festival in January 2020 and later opened in select theaters on May 27, 2022. Throughout its festival and limited theatrical run, the film has so far garnered rave reviews: The Guardian praised the chemistry between the two leads, while the New York Times applauded the film as an “ode to the punk-rock scene of the 1990s Midwest.”
