Veteran rom-com director Nancy Meyers is taking on a producing role here, while her daughter, Hallie Meyers-Shyer takes up the family trade. Home Again sees Reese Witherspoon’s recently separated suburban mum taking up with Pico Alexander’s 20-ish indie filmmaker, but things get complicated when her ex (Michael Sheen) comes back on the scene. Candice Begin and Lake Bell co-star.
This looks like it could be fun. Of course, swallowing the notion of Reese Witherspoon as a harried housewife with dating dramas is a fairly high price of admission, but that’s a pretty good cast, and tonally it looks set to promise the requisite number of gentle chuckles, if not exactly belly-laughs.
Home Again hits Australian cinemas later this year.
