Brad’s Status: October 20-26
When Brad Sloan accompanies his college bound son to the East Coast, the visit triggers a crisis of confidence in Brad’s Status, writer and director Mike White’s bittersweet comedy. Brad has a satisfying career and a comfortable life with his family, but it’s not quite what he imagined during his college glory days. Showing his son around Boston, Brad can’t help comparing his life with those of his four best college friends. As he imagines their wealthy, glamorous lives, he wonders if this is all he will ever amount to. But when circumstances force him to reconnect with his former friends, Brad begins to question whether he has really failed or is, in some ways at least, the most successful of them all.
