Debuting at SXSW next month, Some Girl(s) sees Adam Brody take the lead for the dramatic comedy. Given that we all-too-rarely get to see Brody take up a leading role, this is definitely a must-see film for those heading out to Texas, and I’m hoping it will be a smooth road to distribution later this year.
Starring alongside Brody is a brilliant cast of female past loves, and we have our first look here of Brody with his best friend’s little sister, Reggie, played by the rising young Zoe Kazan.
“Based on his play, Neil LaBute’s script follows a successful writer (Adam Brody) who, on the eve of his wedding, travels across the country to meet up with ex-lovers in an attempt to make amends for past relationship transgressions. Crisscrossing from Seattle to Boston, he reunites with high school sweetheart Sam (Jennifer Morrison), sexually free-spirited Tyler (Mía Maestro), married college professor Lindsay (Emily Watson), his best friend’s little sister Reggie (Zoe Kazan), and “the one that got away” Bobbi (Kristen Bell). Daisy von Scherler Mayer (“Party Girl”) directs this journey of a modern-day Candide stumbling through a landscape familiar to most men – messy breakups.”
Brody and Kazan are joined by a great cast, headed up by Jennifer Morrison, Kristen Bell, Emily Watson, and Mía Maestro.
Daisy von Scherler Mayer (Party Girl, Nurse Jackie) is behind the camera, directing from a script by Neil LaBute (The Wicker Man), based on LaBute’s own play.
The last chance we really got to see Brody in a leading role was in 2007’s In the Land of Women, and I’m really looking forward to seeing him take centre stage once more here, alongside such a fantastic cast.
Some Girl(s) will be making its world premiere in a few weeks at SXSW. I’m hoping it won’t be long before we see it get a wide release across the US and hopefully the UK, too. For now, here’s our first look at Brody and Kazan.
