With a cast the boasts talent like Hugh Laurie, Oliver Platt, Leighton Meester, Katherine Keener, Alia Shawkat, Allison Janney, and Adam Brody, there’s no question this trailer is worth checking out at least for the acting chops on display. The film follows a suburban father (Laurie) who falls for the daughter (Meester) of his best friend (Platt), and things become sufficiently awkward and unpredictable for everyone involved as the affair threatens to wreck the close ties between the families. While the film is not without its flaws, our man in Toronto said in his review that it “frequently charms and delivers full belly laughs,” and if the trailer is any indication, he’s right on the money.
“The Oranges” hits theaters on October 5th. Check out the trailer and poster below.
