*** Director DAVE BOYLE in person on Friday, 9/30 ***

"SURROGATE VALENTINE is an Asian American love story that's first and foremost a love story—by turns, a sweet, funny, and melancholy one, in which most of the important things are left unsaid, but are very definitely felt."
- Brandon Kim, HAMMER TO NAIL
"A total pleasure, surging quietly with authenticity and emotion."
- Peter Martin, TWITCH
WATCH THE TRAILER:
SURROGATE VALENTINE is writer-director David Boyle's heartfelt comedy hit of SXSW, Seattle and BAMcinemaFEST. Featuring the inspired, happy-sad songs of Goh Nakamura (who co-wrote the screenplay and stars as himself), the film makes its New York theatrical premiere with a week-long run, September 30 - October 6.
San Francisco musician Goh Nakamura's life of solitude is disrupted when he is reluctantly hired to teach TV actor Danny Turner (Chadd Stoops) how to play guitar for an upcoming film. Hell-bent on accurately portraying Goh's mellow vibe for his role, Danny meticulously studies his every move. The two embark on a hilarious if awkward West Coast adventure involving live gigs, groupies, shotgun-wielding record execs and an unexpected friendship. Along the way, Goh discovers that Danny might be the missing puzzle piece in his life-long chase for Rachel (Lynn Chenn), the one that got away..
