Produced by Oscar®-winner Greg Shapiro (2008, Best Picture, The Hurt Locker;  with producers Kathryn Bigelow, Mark  Boal, and Nicolas Chartier), Braden Aftergood (Hell or High Water), and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special), and written and directed by Wayne Roberts, this rogueishly humorous and touching film is not to be missed!.

Johnny Depp delivers a wickedly funny performance as Richard, a buttoned-down college lecturer who, after learning he has six months to live, transforms into a rebellious party animal. To the shock of his wife (Roasmarie DeWitt) and school chancellor (Ron Livingston) — and the delight of his students — Richard leads a hilarious crusade against authority and hypocrisy in this dark comedy costarring Zoey Deutch.
