“When I think about you I still see this pudgy baby and then I open my eyes and I see this big kid and I think what have I done wrong? You’re sure everything’s okay with you?” “I’m not a kid anymore?” “You’d tell me if it wasn’t, wouldn’t you?” In the coming-of-age comedy drama ‘Measure of a Man’ a bullied teen experiences a turning point summer in which he learns to stand up for himself.
“You can’t hang out here all summer bothering your mother.” “I actually got a job.” “Have you ever been bullied?” “Yes, by some of the best.”
“You leave me alone.” “What’s a fat kid like you gonna do?” Over the course of an emotional roller coaster of a summer, secrets are revealed, lessons are learned and fourteen-year-old Bobby comes to understand who he is and what makes up the true measure of a man.
“The measure of a man id his ability to navigate to a proper shore during the worst of the storm.” “That’s pretty good, I should write that one down.” Directed by Jim Loach from a screenplay written by David Scearce, based on the novel “One Fat Summer” by Robert Lipsyte starring Blake Cooper, Donald Sutherland, Judy Greer, Luke Wilson, Danielle Rose Russell, Liana Liberato and Beau Knapp ‘Measure of a Man’ has a theater release date of May 11, 2018.
