We know the break between "Mad Men" seasons can be difficult, but luckily, the always solid John Slattery is keeping his chops honed on the big screen as well. And "In Our Nature" offers another chance to see the actor in top form alongside an equally game cast.

We know the break between "Mad Men" seasons can be difficult, but luckily, the always solid John Slattery is keeping his chops honed on the big screen as well. And "In Our Nature" offers another chance to see the actor in top form alongside an equally game cast.

Co-starring Jena Malone, Zach Gilford and Gabrielle Union, the story takes place over a single weekend when a romantic getaway between some young lovers is interrupted when the boyfriend's father shows up at the family cabin with a new girlfriend on his arm. And the result is certainly something a bit unexpected and fresh. The film premiered to good reviews at SXSW this past spring, and it's now making its way to screens around the country. Here's the official synopsis:

Synopsis: When Brooklynite Seth (Zach Gilford, Friday Night Lights) takes his girlfriend Andie (Jena Malone, INTO THE WILD, THE HUNGER GAMES: CATCHING FIRE) to his family's weekend house in upstate New York for a romantic getaway, they are unexpectedly joined by his estranged father Gil (John Slattery, Mad Men), and his much-younger new girlfriend, Vicky (Gabrielle Union, 10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU). The women carefully negotiate emotional minefields as they persuade father and son to share the house for the first time since the summer vacations of Seth's childhood. This unexpected family reunion in the great outdoors, fraught with tensions old and new, pushes them all to realize the bonds of family are always stronger and stranger than expected. From the producers of MEEK'S CUTOFF and WENDY AND LUCY, IN OUR NATURE is an earnest, delicately observed family portrait of couples at a crossroads.
