First Trailer For This Is Where I Leave You
Tina Fey & Jason Bateman have family issues

28 May 2014  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Warner Bros.

Family dysfunction can be mined for all flavours of films: comedies, dramas, key turning points in interstellar squabbles. With his new film, This Is Where I Leave You, Shawn Levy has plumped for dramatic comedy, and the first trailer is now online. 

The movie, adapted by Jonathan Tropper from his novel, finds four grown siblings (Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Corey Stoll and Adam Driver) dealing with the slings and arrows that come with adult life. When their father dies, they’re forced to return home and spend a week living under the same roof again, dealing with their over-sharing mother (Jane Fonda) and a revolving door of spouses, partners, exes and old sweethearts that hardly make the grieving process easier.

As the days pass, they start to confront their history and assess the frayed state of their relationships from a different perspective. Might they even learn something, assuming they don’t kill each other first?

Alongside Fey, Bateman, Stoll and Driver Levy has assembled a cast that includes Jane Fonda, Abigail Spencer, Timothy Olyphant, Connie Britton, Kathryn Hahn, Dax Shepard and Ben Schwartz. It's certainly a great cast, and hopefully the rest of the film matches some of the laughs to be found here. This Is Where I Leave You will be out on September 12.
