Are You Happier? Trailer & Poster For 'Save The Date' With Alison Brie, Lizzy Caplan & Martin Starr

A comedy centered on two very different sisters, featuring a solid cast including Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, Martin Starr, Mark Webber, Melonie Diaz, Geoffrey Arend and Timothy Busfield, the Sundance rom-com "Save the Date" has been rather quiet since it premiered in Utah earlier this year. But IFC Films, releasing the picture later this fall, is finally bringing their campaign to life. Directed by Michael Mohan ("One Too Many Mornings") the first trailer for the film has arrived and it quotes our review from Sundance where we described it as an "endearing" picture that "other rom-coms should aspire to be." And indeed, it does look charming while still containing some emotional depth and smarts.

A comedy centered on two very different sisters, featuring a solid cast including Lizzy Caplan, Alison Brie, Martin Starr, Mark Webber, Melonie Diaz, Geoffrey Arend and Timothy Busfield, the Sundance rom-com "Save the Date" has been rather quiet since it premiered in Utah earlier this year. But IFC Films, releasing the picture later this fall, is finally bringing their campaign to life. Directed by Michael Mohan ("One Too Many Mornings") the first trailer for the film has arrived and it quotes our review from Sundance where we described it as an "endearing" picture that "other rom-coms should aspire to be." And indeed, it does look charming while still containing some emotional depth and smarts.

Here's the long-form synopsis:

After an ill-timed and very public marriage proposal, fiercely independent Sarah (Caplan) breaks up with her overeager boyfriend Kevin (Arend). Sarah turns to her sister Beth (Brie) for support, but Beth is too busy obsessing over the details of her own wedding to Kevin's band mate, Andrew (Starr). When Sarah suddenly finds herself caught up in an intense rebound romance with the adorable Jonathan (Webber), she is forced to examine her own fears of commitment and vulnerability. With honesty, heart, and humor, all five struggle with the trials, happiness, and pain of modern love. In the end Sarah must decide - is it better to stay safely single or to risk it all on love? Filmmaker Michael Mohan (ONE TOO MANY MORNINGS) returns to the Sun- dance Film Festival with a bittersweet screenplay he wrote with famed graphic novelist Jeffrey Brown and co-writer Egan Reich. At turns funny, sad, and sweet, SAVE THE DATE is a sincere story about the familial and romantic bonds that form us all.

"Save the Date" arrives on VOD November 8th and hits theaters in limited release on December 14th. And the soundtrack features Wilco, One AM Radio, Giorgio Moroder and more -- full details here.
