John Truby is the writer/director of All-American Boy, a family drama set in the turbulent times of 1960s’ America. It received the Best Dramatic Film (Gold Special Jury Award) at the Houston International Film Festival and was nominated for Best Picture at the Hollywood Film Festival. The Hollywood Reporter raved, “All-American Boy questions the Vietnam War as a way to contemplate a more personal and perennial crisis – what happens to the relationship between fathers and sons when an irrevocable split in values occurs. Writer-director John Truby takes a hard yet loving look at this eternal drama and makes it personal, intelligent and consistently engaging.”
