In his directorial debut, David Duchovny delivers a classic coming-of-age tale. To reconcile with his 13-year-old son and estranged wife, artist Tom Warshaw (Duchovny) revisits the life changing events of his own adolescence in New York City in 1973, when his best friends were Pappass (Robin Williams), a mentally challenged janitor, and Lady (Erykah Badu), a truth-dispensing detainee in the East Village's legendary Women's House of Detention.

Filled with laugh-out-load momentsias well as poignancy, House Of D is a warmhearted andiwise film.

"A heartfelt gem of a movie! The performances are perfect.  Bill Bregoli, Westwood One
"A pure joy.  Rex Reed, The New York Observer

Editor's Note
David Duchovny makes his feature-film debut as a writer-director in the very funny, very poignant HOUSE OF D. Living in Paris, Tom Warshaw (Duchovny) is an American expatriate who feels it is time to tell his wife and son the truth about what happened when he was a kid. The action then shifts to Greenwich Village in the 1970s, when young Tom (the remarkable Anton Yelchin) has recently lost his father and is trying to survive with his severely depressed mother (Duchovny's real-life wife, Tea Leoni). His best friend is an older, mentally challenged man named Pappass (Robin Williams); the two of them deliver meat together, go to the movies, and see each other in school, where Pappass is the assistant janitor. As his mother's mental state deteriorates, Tom becomes friendly with Lady (Erykah Badu), an inmate at the Women's House of Detention on Tenth Street; they talk about life and love, but Tom can't see her, as she speaks with him from behind the window of her cell up high in solitary confinement. When Tom starts falling for a rich girl, Melissa (Robin Williams's real-life daughter, Zelda Williams, in her feature-film debut), Pappass acts out, changing everything. Duchovny's film is both charming and moving, filled with believable characters caught in believable situations. The acting is uniformly excellent, as is the 1970s soundtrack, including songs by Van Morrison, the Allman Brothers Band, the James Gang, the Doobie Brothers, Stevie Wonder, and Elton John.

Los Angeles Times
"[A] heartfelt coming of age story....A film that takes a steadfastly gentle look at some of life's harshest moments while not overlooking its joys..." 04/15/2005 p.E8

San Francisco Examiner 3 of 10
If one could present an argument for imposing a moratorium on the quirk-laden, coming-of-age dramedy House of D, actor David Duchovny's big-screen writing and directing debut might fit that bill.

This slice of preteen life aims for something darkishly life-embracing but instead delivers depressing mawkishness. Instead of emotional resonance, artificialness prevails. - Anita Katz

Chicago Sun-Times 3 of 10
Yes, I take notes during the movies. I can't always read them, but I persist in hoping that I can. During a movie like House of D, I jot down words I think might be useful in the review. Peering now at my 3x5 cards, I read sappy, inane, cornball, shameless and, my favorite, doofusoid. I sigh. The film has not even inspired interesting adjectives, except for the one I made up myself. - Roger Ebert
