Sebastian Prendergast lives in a dated tourist spot called the House of Tomorrow with his grandmother Josephine. Sebastian longs to leave his isolated existence which quickly changes when he meets Jared Whitcomb, a young up and coming punk rocker with a heart condition, and his sister Meredith. Inspired to rebel, Sebastian decides to pick up a guitar and join Jared in becoming a punk rock group.
Ellen Burstyn owned the footage of her and Buckminster Fuller together in the car and sailing, that is seen in the film. When the director wanted to cast Burstyn, he had no idea they had met in real life. See more »
The movie takes place in North Branch, MN. Yet when Sebastian is biking to Jared's house, the water tower for St. Michael is in the background. North Branch is 68 miles Northeast of St Michael. See more »

Punk Rock Teenage Rebellion - Inspirational For Misfits Of All Ages.
If you were saved by Punk Rock as a teenager, this one is for you. It's not only an inspiration for the misfit kids of today but for the burnt out adults who gave up on their dreams to grow up. The dialog is well written, the soundtrack is excellent, and the acting is on point as well. I've seen Alex Wolff in a few movies now and believe he's going to be a huge star. From this role and a previous one, it's easy to see he's a fan of the same bands I've been inspired by over the years. Perhaps he'll start a band and we'll share the stage one day. The House of Tomorrow will go down as one of those coming of age cult classics such as Angus. -Rapid Randy
