The 2017 coming-of-age comedy Permanent stars Patricia Arquette (Boyhood), Rainn Wilson (Super) and Kira McLean (TV’s Angie Tribeca).  It was written and directed by Colette Burson (creator of HBO’s Hung).

Set in 1982 in small town Virginia, the film centers around 13-year-old Aurelie Dickson (McLean) and her parents, Jeanne and Jim (Arquette and Wilson). The Dicksons are struggling through major life changes together all the while trying desperately to emerge intact on the other side.  The big problem this week begins when Aurelie begs her parents for a permanent (or “perm” for those in the know), hoping for life-changing curly waves.  But when Aurelie’s parents take her to a Beauty School instead of a salon to save money, disaster ensues.

For the Dicksons family, just getting through the day is a win…

Bonus features on the DVD include the following:

-Deleted/alternate scenes
-Getting Permanent with Rainn Wilson
-Virginia is For Lovers
-Theatrical trailer
