Famous in 31 Days
Feeling unhappy at work and experiencing a midlife crisis, the film’s subject quits his job and tries to become nationally recognizable in a month’s time.
John Gerard, abandons his job, cashes in everything he has, hops into his car (decorated with enormous lettering that advertises his goal-and the film’s title) and goes on a 31-day, cross-country trip, hoping to create so much publicity along the way that he’ll end up a guest of Jay Leno and become an instant celebrity.
Will Gerard achieve his dream?
Released in 2007. 77 min. Director: John Gerard. Documentary film.
