Bart Got a Room is a 2009 comedy film written and directed by Brian Hecker, and stars Steven Kaplan, Alia Shawkat, William H. Macy, and Cheryl Hines. Also appearing in the film are Ashley Benson, Brandon Hardesty, Kate Micucci, Jennifer Tilly, Dinah Manoff and Chad Jamian Williams as Bart. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 25, 2008. It had a limited US release in select theaters on April 3, 2009 and was released on DVD on July 28, 2009. For Manoff, this was her first movie in half a decade.



The film chronicles nerdy high school senior Danny Stein (Steven Kaplan) and his unsuccessful attempts to secure a prom date while his divorced father and mother (played by William H. Macy and Cheryl Hines respectively) are on their own unsuccessful quests to find love. The film's name comes from the fact that the school's biggest dweeb, Bart Beeber (Chad Jamian Williams) not only secured a date for the prom, but got a hotel room after as well. This is a source of tremendous great anxiety for both Danny and his family. [1]



Filming took place in Hollywood, Florida.[2] The film is a semi-autobiographical story inspired by the director's life growing up as a nerd in South Florida.[citation needed] In the film, William H. Macy was styled to look as close to the director's dad as possible.[citation needed]


The film won "Best of Fest" awards at The Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival, The Asheville Film Festival, and The Chicago Gen Art Film Festival.
