Dane Cook (Answers to Nothing) stars in the crime-thriller American Exit.

Based on a true story, the film features Cook as Charlie, a desperate father who steals a million-dollar painting from Anton (Udo Kier, Dragged Across Concrete), a shady art dealer. Painting in tow, Charlie gets the hell out of Dodge, fleeing to the California desert with his rebellious teen son, Leo (Levi Miller, Pan). But when Anton and his henchman come seeking revenge, the situation explodes into violence, and suddenly Charlie is not the only one whose days may be numbered.

Featuring an undeniably change-of-pace role for comic actor Cook, American Exit is co-directed and co-written by Tim McCann and Ingo Vollkammer. The DVD incarnation of the film includes a bonus featurette.
