Having played to glowing reviews at the Tribeca Film Festival, Adult Life Skills is now headed our way in a couple of months. Check out the first trailer.

Adult Life Skills finds Jodie Whittaker as Anna, who is stuck in a rut. More specifically, at the age of (nearly) 30, she's stuck living like a hermit in her mother's shed and spends her days making movies starring her own thumbs.

Her mother (Lorraine Ashbourne) wishes she'd grow up, get a haircut, change her wardrobe and move the hell out of her garden, but Anna staunchly resists... But when her old school friend comes to visit, that becomes harder and harder to do, and soon Anna is tangled up with a Western-obsessed eight-year-old and the local estate agent, who wants to be her boyfriend, but can't quite get past his own sorely lacking social skills.

With Rachel Tunnard writing, directing and editing and Alice Lowe, Brett Goldstein and Eileen Davies also in the cast, Adult Life Skills will be out on June 24. No thumbs were harmed in the making of the film, though we fear one got a slight blister.
