Loose-limbed and affectionate, DADDY LONGLEGS paints a clear-eyed portrait of a man torn between excuses and responsibilities and of the children who idolize him. A loving but hopelessly immature father, Lenny (filmmaker Ronald Bronstein of Frownland) gets custody of his sons for two weeks a year. Juggling work as a projectionist and the demands of girlfriends with taking care of two young children, Lenny turns a life of improvised meals and unpredictable days into an adventure for his kids, where lawlessness rules and anything can happen.

"A love letter to New York City as anarchic playground... a film that looks like a relic of the late '70s, but feels urgent."
