Cutie-patootie Dylan Sprouse – of the famous Sprouse twins – plays an escort in the new short film “Daddy.”
Directed by Christian Coppola, it tells the story of an 80-year-old widower, played by Tony Award winner Ron Rifkin, who hires a young man to commemorate, over the course of an evening, the anniversary of his wife’s death.
Instead of the plain-old daddy-gives-baby-takes relationship, the film subverts power dynamics, exploring love, desire, seduction, and death. A fleeting moment scene inside the hotel’s elevator—a dolled-up guest muttering, ‘You and your daddy look very handsome tonight’—invites the audience to question their own assumptions, about both the characters and themselves. Humanity is a complex machine, and Coppola beautifully tackles it in less than 20 minutes.”
