Dylan (Charlie Plummer), a soft-spoken 21-year-old construction worker, is the de facto father figure to his little brother and works odd jobs to help the family get by. After he finds himself with the opportunity to work at a ranch, he is welcomed by a vibrant community of rodeo performers who openly explore their identities and sexuality. He is especially drawn to Sky (Eve Lindley), a force of nature who Dylan connects with deeply, as he begins to forge his own identity.

Writer/Director Luke Gilford, making his feature film directorial debut, sets his moving and exhilarating cinematic reinvention of the coming-of-age story against stunning Western landscapes to boldly reimagine a hopeful exploration of first love, found family and self-discovery that is both timely and timeless. “National Anthem” stars Charlie Plummer in a star-making turn with a stellar supporting cast featuring dynamic performances from Eve Lindley, Rene Rosado, Mason Alexander Park and Robyn Lively.




The film was an Official Selection of SXSW 2023 - Narrative Spotlight as well as an International Premiere at the 2023 Toronto International Film Festival.
