Despite the odd title, Happythankyoumoreplease actually looks pretty good. The film is serving as Josh Radnor’s (Ted from How I Met Your Mother) directorial debut. He will also star in it alongside Malin Akerman, Kate Mara, Zoe Kazan, Tony Hale, and Pablo Schreiber. Winner of the U.S. Dramatic Audience Award at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, the film is set to hit theatres on March 4, 2011. Many who have seen the film say that the trailer doesn’t do it justice. Apparently it’s quite good, but the trailer doesn’t do a good job of portraying that fact. I didn’t mind the trailer, it definitely has me interested. Check out the trailer, plot synopsis and poster below.
On his way to a meeting with a publisher, aspiring novelist Sam Wexler (Radnor) finds Rasheen, a young boy separated from his family on the subway. When the quiet Rasheen refuses to be left alone with social services, Sam learns the boy has already been placed in six previous foster homes and impulsively agrees to let the boy stay with him for a couple days. Dropped into Sam’s chaotic, bachelor lifestyle, Rasheen is introduced to Sam’s circle of friends; Annie (Malin Akerman) who has an unhealthy pattern of dating the wrong men, as well as an auto-immune disorder which has rendered her hairless, Mary-Catherine (Zoe Kazan) and Charlie (Pablo Schreiber) whose potential move to Los Angeles threatens their relationship, and Mississippi (Kate Mara), an aspiring singer/waitress who tests Sam’s fear of commitment. When Sam’s unexpected friendship with Rasheen develops, he realizes adulthood is not about waiting for the right answers to get the life you want, but simply stumbling ahead and figuring them out in the process.
