Brad's Status

"Starting from a single key insight into human behavior - the natural compulsion to compare oneself to others - White has spun a funny, empathetic and surprisingly grounded comedy that itself defies obvious comparisons." - Los Angeles Times

Brad’s Status stars Ben Stiller as a Sacramento suburbanite on a New England college tour with his high-achieving 17-year-old. The film is sly and perceptive, sneaking up on you in the final stretch.

“Brad (Ben Stiller) has a management position at a non-profit; a smart, sweet wife, Melanie (Jenna Fischer); and a son, Troy (Austin Abrams), who's a senior in high school and looks like a strong bet for the Ivy League thanks to his prodigious musical talent. Despite his good fortune, Brad is stressed about the future and plagued by feelings of inadequacy.

“Brad appears to be in the throes of an existential crisis of sorts. He's about to take Troy to visit Harvard, and the milestone of his son leaving home has him unsettled.

Brad’s Status is a droll, affecting movie — and, in its exploration of a man's fantasies of success and fears of failure, his trudge through the weeds of pessimism toward optimism, a distinctly American one.” - Hollywood Reporter

"In the vein of his previous screenplay for Beatriz at Dinner, White depicts the darker side of human nature with deadpan humor and daring honesty." -
