Exclusive Trailer: Demitri Martin Brings the Laughs and the Tears in ‘Dean’

Fans of Demitri Martin appreciate his heady and unconventional brand of comedy, in which he often uses music, drawings and performance art to accompany his deadpan one-liners. Dean, in select theaters March 17, is the offbeat comic’s feature-film writing and directing debut, in which he stars as an illustrator having trouble getting over his mother’s death. Meanwhile, his dad (Kevin Kline) is moving on, hoping to sell the family home and starting a new relationship while Dean ventures from New York to L.A. to search for his own happiness.

Check out the first trailer, below.
