The festival runs from June 1-9 and the screening will be held on Friday, June 3. For more information, be sure to head over to the official website. We have added the first official poster and production stills, featuring John and his lovely co-star Anna Kendrick, in our gallery.
John Hollar, a struggling NYC artist is forced to navigate the small middle-American town he left behind when news of his mother’s illness brings him home. Back in the house he grew up in, John is immediately swept up in the problems of his dysfunctional family, high school rival and an over-eager ex-girlfriend, as he faces impending fatherhood with his girlfriend in New York.
From a script by Jim Strouse that is at turns hilarious and heartbreaking, John Krasiniski’s second feature is a poignant look at the bonds of family and friendship. The film’s cast includes John Krasinski, Margo Martindale, Richard Jenkins, Sharlto Copley, Anna Kendrick, Charlie Day, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Josh Groban and Randall Park.
