In her directorial debut, Bryce Dallas Howard teamed up with her own famous father, actor-director Ron Howard, for this film that features a look at contemporary fatherhood. Howard weaves her father’s story throughout the film and provides an expanded view of fathers as caregivers, a role that social and structural forces mostly assign to mothers. Will Smith, Judd Apatow, Patton Oswalt, and Andy Griffith, as well as nonfamous fathers from around the globe, share anecdotes and pearls of wisdom about what it means to be a dad.
