During the spring of 1977, sci-fi obsessed teenager Pat Johnson (John Francis Daley, Game Night, "Freaks and Geeks") finds himself torn between making 8mm sequels to his favorite movies and pursuing the girl of his dreams, Linda (Emmi Chen, Normal). Desperate to help her son escape his likely future in Wadsworth, Illinois, (population 750), his mother Janet (Colleen Camp, Wayne's World) cold-calls the editor of 'American Cinematographer' magazine and Pat soon finds himself on "the ultimate trip" to Hollywood, becoming the very first outsider to see the film that would change him (and movies) forever... Star Wars. But when Pat returns to his hometown existence, he struggles to choose between chasing a seemingly impossible dream and accepting the comforting familiarity of home.

Produced by Gary Kurtz (Star Wars: A New Hope, American Graffiti), Fred Roos (The Godfather Part II, St. Vincent) and Leigh Jones (Here Alone) and written & directed by Patrick Read Johnson (Dragonheart, Angus), this heartfelt true story features an incredible supporting cast that includes Austin Pendleton (My Cousin Vinny) and Neil Flynn (Mean Girls) along with an original score by David E. Russo ("Gotham", Sin City) with additional themes and songs by legendary rock musician Alan Parsons ("The Alan Parsons Project").

Press Quotes

'5-25-77' is his [Patrick Read Johnson's] loosely autobiographical film about the impact of 'Star Wars' on his own life as a teenage geek in love with the movies... Johnson has made one of the most loving odes to geekdom ever. It is simply fantastic.

     —Jim Emerson, RogerEbert.com

Daley's tremendously appealing and charming turn as the affable protagonist perpetuates the pleasantly easygoing vibe... Johnson delivers an impressively enthralling stretch detailing Pat's trip to Hollywood... a heartfelt drama.
