For those of us who’d like to see Adam Scott get more starring roles, A.C.O.D. is a truly blessed thing. It’s got Scott in a lead role and a long list of talented names (including Richard Jenkins, Amy Poehler, Jane Lynch, Jessica Alba, Catherine O’Hara) in the supporting cast. But most important of all, it looks warm and inviting and chock full of laughs. Scott plays Carter, an A.C.O.D. (Adult Child of Divorce) who has managed to put his messy childhood behind him and lead a relatively stable life. But when his brother (Clark Duke) decides to get married, Carter has to reunite his family and unleash years of pent-up, awkward hostility. Check out the trailer below, courtesy of Yahoo! Movies.

ACOD

Fans of Adam Scott, this one’s for you. The actor is front and center on the newly released poster for A.C.O.D. (That’s Adult Children of Divorce), set against a simple, if not harshly yellow backdrop. And he’s clearly horrified by something happening off camera. As he should be. Scott plays Carter in the Stu Zicherman-directed film, about a man who has to reunite his bitterly divorced parents, who haven’t even spoken in years, for his little brother’s impending nuptials. It’s getting great reviews from its run at Sundance (read our own Allison Loring’s Sundance review here). Zicherman told Entertainment Weekly, which released the image, why he felt that the poster worked, “It’s an ensemble, but Adam is sort of in every scene and is at the center of the family hurricane that is the movie,” he said. “We’d tried a bunch of posters with all the different [actors], and it just felt like this image summed up the notion of the surprises and the chaos of being an A.C.O.D.”
