“Let’s just do our best not to cramp each other’s style,” says Alice (Reese Witherspoon) in a new trailer for Hallie Meyers-Shyer’s “Home Again.” She’s talking to the three young men (Pico Alexander, Nat Wolff, Jon Rudnitsky) who have recently become her roommates. The 40-year old mother of two separated from her husband five months ago, and her mom (Candice Bergen) encourages Alice to think of her new living arrangements as “something that could be sort of exciting.” And it turns out she’s right.
The footage suggests that Alice — and her daughters — get along really well with the trio. So well that things get very, very awkward when Alice’s ex (Michael Sheen) shows up unexpectedly and moves back in. “I miss our family. Let’s fix it,” he begs. But it seems like a new family has formed in his absence. Plus, a romance is developing between Alice and one of the roommates.
Witherspoon was last seen in “Big Little Lies,” HBO’s adaptation of Liane Moriarty’s best-selling novel of the same name. The Oscar-winning actress served as an executive producer on the murder mystery.
In a recent interview the “Wild” star revealed that that she faced resistance — and sexism — when she first decided to start working behind-the-scenes. “I really reject the idea that women have to stay in one life,” she explained. “People have said, ‘You can’t start a company; just stay being an actress.’ Why are women supposed to be one thing? Nobody thinks Robert De Niro is stepping outside [his boundaries by] owning hotels and restaurants. Life has many chapters. You have to think, what am I going to do next?”
“Home Again” hits theaters September 8.
Trailer Watch: Reese Witherspoon Forms a Family with Friends in Hallie Meyers-Shyer’s “Home Again” was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »

Open Road Films have released a brand new trailer for their upcoming comedy-drama Home Again, which you can view in the player below.
Home Again follows the story of a woman (Oscar Winner Reese Witherspoon) who turns forty and was recently separated from her husband. She somehow ends up with three aspiring (and hunky) directors living under her roof and hilarity, and love, ensues. The film will certainly have a familiar look to many as it has all the hallmarks of a Nancy Meyers film, the acclaimed writer/director behind such films as It’s Complicated (which starred Meryl Streep and Steve Martin), Something’s Gotta Give (with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton), The Holiday (which starred Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet) and The Intern, her most recent film which starred Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro.

"Let's just do our best not to cramp each other's style." Open Road Films has debuted a full trailer for the comedy Home Again, the feature directorial debut of young filmmaker Hallie Meyers-Shyer. This amusing original Hollywood comedy is about a recently divorced woman who moves back home to Los Angeles with her two young daughters. She decides to take in three aspiring filmmaker boys who share her place with her, and disrupt things in both helpful ways and troubling ways. Reese Witherspoon stars, with Michael Sheen, Lake Bell, Candice Bergen, Nat Wolff, Jon Rudnitsky, Pico Alexander, P.J. Byrne. There is something about this film that is really annoying to me. The first teaser was good, this trailer not so much. Here's the second official trailer for Hallie Meyers-Shyer's Home Again, direct from YouTube: Recently separated from her husband, (Michael Sheen), Alice (Reese Witherspoon) decides to start over by »

The first trailer for Home Again is here. Looks fun!
Recently separated from her husband, (Michael Sheen), Alice decides to start over by moving back to her hometown of Los Angeles with her two young daughters. During a night out on her 40th birthday, Alice meets three aspiring filmmakers who happen to be in need of a place to live. Alice agrees to let the guys stay in her guest house temporarily, but the arrangement ends up unfolding in unexpected ways.
Alice’s unlikely new family and new romance comes to a crashing halt when her ex-husband shows up, suitcase in hand. Home Again is a story of love, friendship, and the families we create. And one very big life lesson: Starting over is not for beginners. »

Who’s the elderly chap in spectacles and a cloth cap? You may be surprised to learn this is intellectual heart throb Richard Gere, who takes arguably the role of a lifetime in new drama Norman (elaborate subtitle: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer). Gere is finally showing his age in an intriguing story of business and politics that feels like a true story, even though it’s the brainchild of writer/director Joseph Cedar.
Norman Oppenheimer (a character reportedly inspired by events in Nazi propaganda film The Jew Suess) is a veteran consultant, a mover and shaker who conjures up his own work day to day through sheer instinct and tenacity. When he ingratiates himself with Israeli politician Micha Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi) in pursuit of a deal an unlikely friendship develops. »

Quietly, Richard Gere is consistently making rather good movies, telling interesting stories and taking on nuanced, intriguing roles. From The Benefactor to Arbitrage (let’s just forget The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for now) – he’s tackling intimate character studies, and his latest, Joseph Cedar’s Norman, is no different.
Gere plays the eponymous protagonist, a professional chancer and over-enthused fixer – only problem is, nobody will actually let him get close enough to fix anything. Until he meets Eshel (Lior Ashkenazi), an Israeli politician spending some time in New York, touched by Norman’s offer to buy him a pair of shoes. Three years pass, and Eshel is now an influential world leader, as the Prime Minister of his native country, and when he returns to the States to meet the President, Norman shows up at a function – and they remember each other well.

Directed by Joseph Cedar.
From the outside, Norman Oppenheim (Richard Gere) looks like an eccentric businessman. But the truth is that he dreams up schemes that come to nothing, so he tries to be everybody’s friend, and doesn’t succeed at that either. Until he strikes up an unexpected friendship with an Israeli politician, one that brings him the attention and respect he craves. And one that encourages him to broker a series of deals that eventually start a political crisis ……
Let’s give the film its full title – Norman: The Moderate Rise and Tragic Fall of a New York Fixer. It’s no surprise that the distributors went for the one word title, but the longer version gives you a better idea of what the film is about. Sort of. Because the »
