High school isn’t easy. (Understatement of the century, right?) I think we’ve all wished that we had someone there to guide us through it – to tell us how to succeed, make friends, and deal with the drama. There’s no better guru to help you run the school than someone who has run a country, right? That’s what Tatiana Mills (Odeya Rush) will find out in Dear Dictator.
When political turmoil forces a British-Caribbean dictator (Michael Caine) to flee his island nation, he seeks refuge with his pen pal – Tatiana – in suburban America. A rogue dictator might seem like a less than ideal houseguest, but taking in General Anton Vincent has its perks. He teaches Tatiana how to start a revolution and overthrow the mean girls in her high school.
In this exclusive clip, we see the General start to give Tatiana advice about exploiting her classmates’ weaknesses in order to come out on top. Hey, being feared is just as good as being loved… right?
From the husband and wife team of Lisa Addario and Joe Syracuse, and featuring an all-star cast including Caine, Rush, Katie Holmes, Seth Green, and Jason Biggs, Dear Dictator is a timely satire ready to bring the laughs and the rebellion.
Dear Dictator hits theaters and VOD on March 16.
