The Doo Dah Man is a 2015 indie drama film directed by Claude Green, and stars Glenn Morshower, Will Brittain, and Katherine Willis. The movie takes place in Texas in the summer of 1976 and follows the story of a group of teenagers who are looking for a way to escape their mundane lives. The story begins when high school student Andy (Will Brittain) and his two friends stumble upon a flyer for The Doo Dah Man, a traveling carnival that promises to provide them with the excitement they crave. The trio soon sets out on a road trip to find the carnival and meet its enigmatic leader, played by Glenn Morshower.

As the teenagers make their way through Texas, they encounter a series of obstacles and misadventures, including a run-in with a group of hostile bikers and a tense encounter with a nosy police officer.

Throughout their journey, the characters grapple with issues of identity and self-discovery, as well as the challenges of growing up in a small town. Andy, in particular, struggles to reconcile his desire for adventure with his obligations to his family and community.

One of the film's strongest elements is the way it captures the atmosphere of small-town America in the 1970s. Through its cinematography and production design, the movie evokes a nostalgic sense of a bygone era, complete with classic cars, rock and roll music, and funky fashion.

The film's cast also deserves praise, particularly Will Brittain in the lead role. Brittain delivers a compelling performance as Andy, skillfully navigating the character's internal conflicts and emotional journey. Glenn Morshower also shines as The Doo Dah Man, exuding an air of mystery and charisma that makes the character both captivating and unsettling.

Overall, The Doo Dah Man succeeds in drawing the viewer into its world and telling a meaningful story about adolescence, adventure, and the search for meaning. While the film may not appeal to all audiences, it is a solid indie drama that deserves recognition for its strong performances and effective storytelling.

The Doo Dah Man is a 2015 drama with a runtime of 1 hour and 36 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.2.
