They say life begins at 40 (nothing has changed for my except my waistline), for Reece Witherspoon in Home Again life is starting again. Now divorced, moving back home and like the Orange Juice song, she’s ‘Rip Up And Start Again’. Moving home to a house with three potential love interests but love is always complicated when ex-hubbie turns up!
STX Entertainment UK has sent us the UK trailer, the debut directorial feature for Hallie Meyers-Shyer. The daughter of the woman who helped mould the Rom-com subgenre Nancy Meyers (the movie’s producer) and like one of her movies, this one ‘it’s Complicated’!
HOME AGAIN stars Reese Witherspoon (Wild, This Means War, Legally Blonde) as Alice Kinney in a modern romantic comedy. Recently separated from her husband (Michael Sheen, Passengers, Nocturnal Animals), Alice decides to start over by moving back to her hometown of Los Angeles with her two young daughters. During a night out on her 40th birthday, Alice meets three aspiring filmmakers (Nat Wolff, Pico Alexander and Jon Rudnitsky) who happen to be in need of a place to live. Alice agrees to let the guys stay in her guest house temporarily, but the arrangement ends up unfolding in unexpected ways. Alice’s unlikely new family and new romance comes to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand.
Produced by Nancy Meyers (The Intern, It’s Complicated, What Women Want, The Holiday) and written and directed by her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer, HOME AGAIN is a story of love, friendship, and the families we create. And one very big life lesson: Starting over is not for beginners.
Home Again will arrive in UK&Irish Cinemas from 29th September (USA 8th September), co-starring Pico Alexander, Nat Wolff, Lake Bell, and Candice Bergen.
