After his ex-girlfriend disappears, Sidney, a glam rock dilettante, is forced to look after his 11-year-old son full-time. His 'cool dad' facade quickly falls apart and his life goes into full tailspin as he struggles to let go of his rock-and-roll lifestyle.
“Tomas Pais brings a thoughtful energy to Sidney, upbeat but with occasional flashes of quiet desperation and his trajectory feels measured, realistic and, as with all good stories, emotionally satisfying.” – Eye For Eye
"A certifiably oddball but legitimate take on the modern dysfunctional family."–The Hollywood Reporter
"Good, honest performances, especially from Pais and young Holdener, who make a credible, if unorthodox, father-son unit — even if in the real world, child protective services would likely be nipping at Sidney’s high heels. " –The Hollywood Reporter
"Hunky Dory is an opulent, gender-bending and audacious feat." –Slug Magazine
