Dir. Gideon C. Kennedy and Marcus Rosentrater - 2016 - 84m
A true tale told by those who lived it.
Ten friends tell the unbelievable true story of the New Year none of them would forget – when they hired a limousine at 4am to take them to the beach for the Polar Bear dip. The greatest bar story ever told meets experimental form in the debut feature-length documentary comedy by filmmakers Marcus Rosentrater and Gideon C. Kennedy.
After working all New Year’s Eve in bars and bands, ten friends in Mobile, Alabama meet for their annual tradition – running naked into the Gulf of Mexico on the Florida – Alabama line. When they hire the only limousine service to answer at 4AM, their old custom takes a new turn and veers down a dark path.
Stripped, separated, and stranded in the freezing night, they are left to ask themselves: How far will the bonds of friendship stretch before they snap?
"A cult nonfiction film, joining such favorites as American Movie, Anvil! The Story of Anvil, Heavy Metal Parking Lot, The King of Kong" - Christopher Campbell, Film School Rejects
“The movie is the latest collaboration of creative partners Gideon Kennedy and Marcus Rosentrater – filmmakers with a longstanding connection to Mobile. And while the finished product is certainly their brainchild, at its core is the story shared by those who lived and breathed the original experience more than a decade ago. “ — Michael Dumas, AL.com

“It still shows enormous empathy and sensitivity in capturing the angst and alienation of American youth, making it seem both rooted in a specific time and place and strangely timeless.” - Nathan Rabin, AV Club
“Penelope Spheeris's Suburbia is a clear- eyed, compassionate melodrama about a bunch of young dropouts who call themselves ''The Rejected'' or, for short, the TR’s.” - Vincent Canby, New York Times
