Been itching to see a movie about introspective creative types? Then Millennium Entertainment has the film for you. It’s called Writers, and it stars the always likable Greg Kinnear as the patriarch of a broken family who all fancy themselves to be authors. As you might imagine, that means they’re all pretty bad with other human beings and relationships and whatnot, and they’re far too sensitive to make it in such an unforgiving world, so their lives are filled with all sorts of delicious drama. Don’t worry about things getting too heavy though… this is a movie, not real life, and poignant lessons about love and togetherness take the place of a head in an oven.
But maybe you’re not looking for a movie about introspection. Maybe you’re looking for a movie that casts Lily Collins and Jennifer Connelly as an almost creepily pretty-in-the-same-way mother/daughter duo, or a movie that has Kristen Bell jogging around in a sports bra. Well, as you can see from its new trailer, Writers has that too. Aren’t you in luck?
Writers, the debut feature from writer/director Josh Boone, is all set for a limited release come April 19, so if you find yourself intrigued by it you’ve still got a little bit of a wait before you can actually check it out. If the trailer has you itching to learn more, however, you’re in luck again, because I hunted the movie down at TIFF last year and wrote a little review of it. For the sake of Greg Kinnear, give it a look. We still owe him for You’ve Got Mail.
