Fantastic news, Zoey fans! The Year of Spectacular Men has made the line up to more two film festivals – LA Femme International and Napa Valley! Bellow you will find all the information on both film festivals and the dates the movie will be shown.

LA Femme International Film Festival – October 21

On Saturday, Oct. 21, actress and past LAIFF Honoree Lea Thompson (Back to the Future, Caroline in the City) will host a special screening of her feature directorial debut feature film “The Year of Spectacular Men”, a zesty romantic comedy written by her daughter Madelyn Deutch, who stars with her real-life sister Zoey Deutch. The red carpet starts at 6pm; screening at 7 pm and will be followed by a Q&A with Lea Thompson, Madelyn Deutch and Zoey Deutch and after party at The Edison bar in downtown Los Angeles. Q&A sponsored SAG-AFTRA diversity division.

Hollywood Reporter called the film a, “sparky comedy” and, “a smartly fractured fairy tale” which showcases the Deutch duo who, “hold the screen with charm and intelligence to spare.” Synopsis: Izzy Klein is drowning in her post-college, pre-real-world millennialitis. With no cure in sight, no proper life plan, and her much more together little sister as her north star – she sets out on a year’s journey of some not so romantic romances with five less than spectacular men. And along her path she discovers that you must face your past, to embrace your future.


Napa Valley Film Festival – November 8

Having barely graduated from college, Izzy Klein (Madelyn Deutch), is now stranded in New York City with a bad case of pre-real-world millennial-itis. Unsure of her next move, Izzy’s younger movie star sister Sabrina (2016 NVFF Rising Star Zoey Deutch) convinces her to move back home to Los Angeles and into the apartment she shares with her boyfriend Sebastian, where they can keep an eye on her. Emotionally unable to deal with the loss of her father and slightly distracted by her mother Deb’s (Lea Thompson) newfound love affair with a loopy yogini, Izzy funnels her energy into dating a colorful bouquet of five complicated and spectacular men: Aaron, Ross, Logan, Mikey, and Charlie. Over the course of the next year, and coping – just barely – with the help of her trusty notebook, Izzy falls in and out of some not-so-romantic romances, and figures out that when it totally feels like the end of your story, it’s often just the beginning.
