I’m excited to share the This is Where I Leave You trailer with you today as it looks like a film that I can totally relate to and be into. Prior to this post, I’d never heard of the movie or the book. However, now I want to watch the film and read the book.
Disclosure: I will be receiving a gift card to see the film.
This is Where I Leave You Trailer
In case you are like me and have never heard of this movie/book before now, here’s a brief synopsis of the film:
When their father passes away, four grown siblings, bruised and banged up by their respective adult lives, are forced to return to their childhood home and live under the same roof together for a week, along with their over-sharing mother and an assortment of spouses, exes and might-have-beens. Confronting their history and the frayed states of their relationships among the people who know and love them best, they ultimately reconnect in hysterical and emotionally affecting ways amid the chaos, humor, heartache and redemption that only families can provide—driving us insane even as they remind us of our truest, and often best, selves.
As any long-time Laughing Lindsay reader should know, I’ve been dealing with my own father’s death the past 2 years. So, a movie that looks at how a family grieves and comes back together in times of need already has my attention. Plus, I love all of the actors in the film. This Is Where I Leave You stars Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Britton, Timothy Olyphant, Dax Shepard and Jane Fonda. I’m a huge fan of Tina Fey (I reviewed her Bossypants book back in 2011). Plus, I loved Connie Britton in American Horror Story’s first season and Corey Stoll in House of Cards. I binge watched both of those shows, so I’m looking forward to seeing them in different roles.
I guess I should finally get to that This is Where I Leave You trailer I keep teasing you about. So, here it is…
Additionally, I want to point out the This is Where I Leave You book club. It’s always fun to read the book before the movie, right? Join Warner Bros. Pictures’ #TIWILY book discussion on the film’s Facebook page each Wednesday, and take part in the conversation for a chance to win signed movie posters and a trip to the premiere in Hollywood!
So, what do you think of the This is Where I Leave You trailer? Does it look interesting to you? Will you be catching it in theaters on September 19th?
