Interview: Adam Rehmeier on the creation of new film ‘Snack Shack’ 

Adam Rehmeier’s Dinner in America is a firm favourite of the team at THN. The film starring Emily Skeggs and Kyle Gallner has won over not just us, but a legion of fans with its charming tale of punk love in suburbia. It therefore comes as very exciting news that Adam Rehmeier has already made his next film, Snack Shack, which is almost here.

Arriving into US theaters from Friday 15th March, Snack Shack is a loving throwback to the coming-of-age comedy films that made growing up in the nineties so special. Set over the course of the summer of 1991 in Nebraska City, Snack Shack joins best friends AJ (Conor Sherry) and Moose (Gabriel LaBelle) as they take over management of the local swimming pool’s snack shack. The two friends are as thick as thieves until new girl Brooke (Mika Abdalla) moves in next door to AJ. As the friends vie for her affections, they grow apart. Can they keep their friendship and burgeoning business together? 

Also featuring a performance from Nick Robinson, who also serves as executive producer, Snack Shack is a real love letter to a bygone style of film. Fans of Dinner in America will not be disappointed as Snack Shack has another couple of lovable misfits to connect with. It even has some sneaky Easter eggs to keep an eye out for. Adam Rehmeier both writes and directs the film which is, in part, inspired by his own life.

After loving the work of Adam Rehmeier from afar, we were delighted to finally be able to sit down and pick his brain about not only Snack Shack, but also Dinner in America. Rehmeier talked us through the inception of the idea, how he recreated his own childhood for the film, and exactly where to look out for some of those Dinner in America nods. We also discussed Rehmeier’s hopes to continue the story of Dinner in America’s Patty and Simon. Watch now to find out more. 

Snack Shack arrives exclusively in US cinemas from Friday 15th March 2024.
