Jennifer Vogel’s father John was larger than life. As a child, Jennifer marveled at his magnetizing energy and ability to make life feel like a grand adventure. He taught her so much about love and joy, but he also happened to be the most notorious counterfeiter in US history. Based on a true story and directed by Sean Penn, Flag Day stars Penn and his real-life daughter Dylan Penn in an intimate family portrait about a young woman who struggles to rise above the wreckage of her past while reconciling the inescapable bond between a daughter and her father.

Flag Day is directed by Sean Penn (Into the Wild) and stars Dylan Penn as Jennifer Vogel, Academy Award® winner Sean Penn as her father John Vogel, and Katheryn Winnick as her mother Patty Vogel. Based on Jennifer Vogel’s memoir Flim-Flam Man: The True Story of My Father’s Counterfeit Life, the film is adapted for the screen by Tony Award® winner Jez Butterworth & John-Henry Butterworth, and produced by Golden Globe® winner William Horberg, Academy Award® nominee Jon Kilik and Fernando Sulichin. Original songs are by Cat Power, Glen Hansard and Eddie Vedder.
