An American Dream: The Education of William Bowman

An American Dream: The Education of William Bowman

Running Time: 86 mins

Sent down the proverbial rabbit hole and dumped out the other end.

William Bowman is a small town boy with small-town dreams. And like any average teenager, when approached with the subject of his future, Bowman would often retreat into the safe recesses of his mind. When a concussion seemingly sends William to an uncertain future, what follows is a series of hilarious capers from William’s status as an average teenager to a nationwide media phenomenon. Is William a product of bad luck? Good luck? Or is his future subject to miracles and unlikely circumstances? An American Dream: The Education of William Bowman is a hilarious satire that offers Idiocracy levels of commentary on the power of media and the American Dream… even if that dream is a bit crazy. – Joseph Morales
