From Josh Boone; the chap who’s recently signed on to adapt the hugely popular The Fault In Our Stars comes Stuck In Love. His debut flick dallies with similar subjects: teen love; adult love; err…alright, it’s a film about love. He’s obviously got a lot to say about the troublesome mistress that is romance. If you’re intrigued by a film which isn’t going to sugar coat it, then check out the trailer below.
Writer-director Boone’s first feature, Stuck In Love has a number of things going for it. Two of those are Jennifer Connelly and Kristen Bell. Sure, Greg Kinnear is in it too and he’s a solid actor who always brings the dependable. In an period of cinema where boundary-shattering roles are few and far between for women though, it’s exciting to see Connelly in…well, ANYTHING. The Oscar-winning actress hasn’t filled her schedule to the brim in recent years. Possibly because The Dilemma was a tad disappointing.
Check out the plot summary below:
Three years past his divorce, veteran novelist Bill Borgens (Academy Award nominee Greg Kinnear) can¹t stop obsessing over, let alone spying on, his ex-wife Erica (Academy Award winner Jennifer Connelly), who ignominiously left him for another man. Even as his neighbor-with-benefits, Tricia (Kristen Bell, House of Lies), tries to push him back into the dating pool, he remains blind to anyone else¹s charms. Meanwhile, his fiercely independent collegiate daughter Samantha (Lily Collins, MIRROR MIRROR) is publishing her first novel while recoiling at the very thought of first love with a diehard romantic (Logan Lerman, THE PERKS OF BEING A WALLFLOWER); and his teen son Rusty (Nat Wolff, PEACE, LOVE AND MISUNDERSTANDING) is trying to find his voice, both as a fantasy writer and as the unexpected boyfriend of a dream girl with unsettlingly real problems. As each of these situations mounts into a tangled trio of romantic holiday crises, it brings the Borgens to surprising revelations about how endings become beginnings.
Stuck In Love opens on June 14th.
