Join MoMI and Rooftop Films for a special Queens sneak preview of NBC’s Sunnyside starring Kal Penn, who will be in attendance for a post-screening discussion.
Garrett Modi (Kal Penn) was living the American Dream. As the youngest New York City Councilman ever, he was rubbing elbows with the political elite, attending star-studded parties and was the pride of Queens. But instead of spending his time in office helping the people that got him elected, he lost his way amidst the power and glamour of politics. When his downward spiral got him busted for public intoxication (and downright stupidity), it was all caught on tape and ended his career. Now, Garrett is crashing with his sister Mallory and wondering where it all went wrong. That is, until he is hired by a diverse group of idealists who dream of becoming American citizens and believe he can help—giving him a new sense of purpose and a chance for redemption, as long as he remembers where he came from.
