Like many Corey Feldman fans, the characters in The M Word are struggling with Menopause. We have your first look at the trailer, which brings former child star turned author, musician and ice skater Feldman back to the big screen for the first time in over a decade. Opening in Los Angeles and New York in April before expanding wider, The M Word follows the personal changes at a local TV station that is threatened by economic downturn, possible in-house theft and massive job loss. They decide to subvert all of this by taking on an ill-advised documentary about Menopause. Henry Jaglom directs this indie comedy, which also stars Michael Imperioli, Frances Fisher, Gregory Harrison and Julie Davis.
