Danish comedy star Casper Christensen co-wrote and stars as Thorkil in this film based on the true story of the Hope Whisper Danish electric car from the early 80s. In DAN DREAM, Thorkil is a man ahead of his time who can never get credit for his million-dollar ideas. When he finds himself out of a job, but with a vision to make an electric car, he recruits his hapless group of friends to join him in the venture. Hilariously depicting the trials and tribulations of blazing the trails of invention, DAN DREAM is a lot like the “Wolf of Wall Street” for the 80s Danish electric car market. When the group moves into a small town to make their car, they quickly find out provincial living isn’t ready for big city ideas. Funny with heart—much like Thorkil—DAN DREAM is just a buddy-comedy, road-trip movie looking for a road. And a car. (In Danish with subtitles) —T.W.
