A skate-parking Accidental Dad pushing 30 – knowing absolutely everything he has to fear for his beteening daughter – organizes a Better Sons-in-Law Society.
That’s Dics->Dsci – plausible only with both an accident and a huge loss of trust in Act II.
I love the skate-park as a setting because of the ethos of virtue and valor played out against the expectation of vandalism or even violence.
I love the Dutch Uncle nature of all the relationships there, too: Everyone is working out his own father-hunger, and there is no ‘authoritah’ except ongoing, thoroughgoing excellence – reliable leadership.
That carries over to the Better Sons-in-Law Society, too, since we’re all just brother skaters on that journey. Accordingly, the good guy his daughter picks in Act III will drive his own ultimate redemption – because that’s how sons-in-law look out for each other.
Hunky dad with a love interest. Sweet teen girl-next-door-in-short-shorts with a dozen skate-punk hangers-on and one ultimate heart-throb. A date movie for the whole family. Sounds like fun to me.
