Is This is Where I Leave You one of Warner Bros Pictures’ Oscar hopefuls? The trailer’s lighter in tone than the book, but an awards run is still a possibility. The dramatic comedy is based on Jonathan Tropper’s bestselling novel and stars Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Jane Fonda, Adam Driver, Rose Byrne, Corey Stoll, Kathryn Hahn, Connie Britton, Timothy Olyphant, and Dax Shepard. Directed by Shawn Levy, This is Where I Leave You will open in theaters on September 12, 2014.
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.
