Jeff, Who Lives At Home is the latest offering from Duplass brothers Jay and Mark, and judging from what we’ve seen so far, it has the potential to be up there as one of the best indie films of the year.
Starring Jason Segel as the eponymous Jeff and Ed Helms as his brother Pat, the film is written and directed by Jay and Mark Duplass, with a supporting cast that includes Susan Sarandon as the brothers’ mother Sharon and the excellent Judy Greer as Helms’ wife, Carol.
“On his way to the store to buy wood glue, Jeff looks for signs from the universe to determine his path. However, a series of comedic and unexpected events leads him to cross paths with his family in the strangest of locations and circumstances. Jeff just may find the meaning of his life… and if he’s lucky, pick up the wood glue as well.”
If you caught the terrific first trailer back in January, you’ll know why I have high hopes for this film. It looks like the perfect blend of comedy and heartfelt drama with a great leading cast.
Jeff, Who Lives At Home will be with you in the US this week, on Friday, 16th March, and will then be coming to cinemas here in the UK next month on 20th April. I can’t wait. As usual with these new images beneath the three clips (put together into one video), you can click to enlarge.
