Reese Witherspoon returns to the genre she’s had the greatest success with – the rom-com – with Home Again. However, she’s grown up a bit since Legally Blonde, as she’s now playing a woman who’s recently become a single mom and decides to change her life.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘HOME AGAIN stars Reese Witherspoon (Wild, This Means War, Legally Blonde) as Alice Kinney in a modern romantic comedy. Recently separated from her husband (Michael Sheen, Passengers, Nocturnal Animals), Alice decides to start over by moving back to her hometown of Los Angeles with her two young daughters, and struggles to get her fledgling design career off the ground whilst also navigating the family’s new life. During a night out on her 40th birthday, Alice meets three young, charismatic filmmakers (Nat Wolff, Pico Alexander and Jon Rudnitsky) who she decides to take in while they try their hand in Hollywood. An unconventional family dynamic emerges, leading them all on an unexpected journey of discovery.
‘Produced by Nancy Meyers (The Intern, It’s Complicated, What Women Want, The Holiday) and written and directed by her daughter Hallie Meyers-Shyer, 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..’
The movie will be in UK cinemas at the end of September. Take a look at the trailer below.
