Winner of the New Directors Award at the 2008 Edinburgh Film Festival and official selection in dramatic competition at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, "Good Dick" is an idiosyncratic romance about a video store clerk (Jason Ritter) and a female customer (Marianna Palka) who rents erotic DVDs from him. Not quite the sexploitation film its title might suggest, it is an unexpected romantic comedy following a young man on his pursuit of a lonely, troubled woman set in present day Los Angeles.
