The new family comedy-drama film Sam & Kate is truly a family affair where art imitates life with the father/son casting of Dustin and Jake Hoffman and the mother/daughter casting of Sissy Spacek and Schuyler Fisk. We were joined on the Popternative show by Jake Hoffman and Schuyler Fisk to discuss their new film.

Written and directed by Darren Le Gallo, Sam & Kate takes place in a small town in the heart of the country where Dustin Hoffman plays Bill, the larger-than-life father to Sam (Jake Hoffman), who returns home to take care of his ailing dad. While home, Sam falls for a local woman, Kate (Schuyler Fisk). At the same time, Bill starts to fall for her mom, Tina (Sissy Spacek). But finding love is complicated and for these four as they all must confront their past in order to make their new love work for the future.
