Description:
  The cruelties of childhood can have a devastating impact on our lives, but for Tracy Orbison (Hubbel Palmer), the troubles never end; A small town twenty-something grocery store employee living at home with his mom, Tracy’s early adulthood has been a parade of hilarious failures. When Tracy is accepted by a gang of teenagers seeking help in their campaign of small town hell-raising, Tracy is finally forced to stand up for himself. At once touching and funny, Chris Bowman’s American Fork tenderly reminds us of the difficult transition between childhood and becoming an adult.

A new comedy from the creators of Napoleon Dynamite.

Much like producer Jeremy Coon's commercial hit, Napoleon Dynamite, American Fork shines above most of the "dork comedies" that have been sweeping festivals across the nation. Like a more hopeful version of Todd Solondz's Welcome to the Dollhouse, director Chris Bowman's film pumps you full of love for the main character, and you'll find yourself rooting for him through every awkwardly funny mishap. A different kind of everyman, Tracy Orbison reminds us all to take care when following our dreams.
