Winner of the New Directors Award at the 2008 Edinburgh Film Festival and official selection in dramatic competition at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, "Good Dick" is an idiosyncratic romance about a video store clerk (Jason Ritter) and a female customer (Marianna Palka) who rents erotic DVDs from him. Not quite the sexploitation film its' title might suggest, it is an unexpected romantic comedy following a young man on his pursuit of a lonely, troubled woman set in present day Los Angeles.

In addition to starring in the film, "Good Dick" marks Marianna Palka's writing and directorial debut. The producers are Jennifer Dubin, Cora Olson, Marianna Palka and Jason Ritter. It will be released in Los Angeles on October 10th and New York on October 17th by Present Pictures and Morning Knight.

            Cody has got himself electrocuted with high voltage on his van's Christmas lighting for a local contest. J.T. proves himself a gifted salesman eager to pay for a ski trip, but Cody's friend George, who never saved a cent after 42 years in an ice cream cart because he even gave cones away just to see the kids' happy faces, sabotages every attempt to sell a beautiful Christmas tree he promised to Jimmy, a boy who could never afford one and may accept no charity, so George gave the kid a 'job' after an exam ('name?'). Frank invited Mitch Crawford's Californian family, who knew the Lamberts years ago, for the family's Christmas dinner instead of the lousy local motel. Both fathers arranged for hunky son Matt Crawford to 'date' tomcat Al, Carol got them shamefully sissy ballet tickets. The unwilling teenagers meet at tender-hooks, but discover to be rather alike, give the tickets away, go to ice-hockey instead- and are caught tongue-kissing in the car by Frank, who looses it at Matt till the Crawfords move out insulted: far beneath Carols's hospitality standard, especially for Christmas...
