A terminally-ill con man and his estranged son endeavor to live on $5 a day during a cross country drive in this road trip comedy from director Nigel Cole (Saving Grace, Calendar Girls). Nat (Christopher Walken) may be a great con man, but as a father to Flynn (Alessandro Nivola) he always came up short. Informed by his doctor that he's suffering from a terminal illness, Nat learns of an experimental treatment that could offer him a second chance at life. But that's all the way on the other side

Watch It Now
$5 a Day isn't perfect, but it does examine some of the issues that we have when connecting with our parents as adults.
A mildly engaging road movie of father-son reconciliation that is illustrative of the difference between charm and narrative conflict.
The success of the piece rests on Nivola's calm adaptability as fatherly hi-jinx tries his patience and makes its mark on his heart.
