The-Oranges-UK-Quad-PosterThe Oranges sees the very promising and rather unlikely pairing of Hugh Laurie (House) and Leighton Meester (Gossip Girls) in the leading roles.

We caught the excellent first trailer back in the summer, and with an all-star cast led by Laurie and Meester, it’s naturally been one to look forward to this year.

The film was released in the US back in October, and will be released in UK theatres this Friday, and we’ve been given an exclusive new clip from the film to share.

“David and Paige Ostroff (Hugh Laurie, Catherine Keener) and Terry and Cathy Walling (Oliver Platt, Allison Janney) are best friends and neighbors living on Orange Drive in suburban New Jersey. Their comfortable existence goes awry when prodigal daughter Nina Ostroff (Leighton Meester), newly broken up with her fiancé Ethan (Sam Rosen), returns home for Thanksgiving after a five-year absence. Rather than developing an interest in the successful son of her neighbors, Toby Walling (Adam Brody), which would please both families, it’s her parents’ best friend David who captures Nina’s attention.

When the connection between Nina and David becomes undeniable, everyone’s lives are thrown into upheaval, particularly Vanessa Walling’s (Alia Shawkat), Nina’s childhood best friend. It’s not long before the ramifications of the affair begin to work on all of the family members in unexpected and hilarious ways, leading everyone to reawaken to their lives, reassess what it means to be happy, and realize that sometimes what looks like a disaster turns out to be the thing we need.”

Starring alongside Laurie and Meester will be Alia Shawkat, Adam Brody, Allison Janney, Oliver Platt, Boyd Holbrook, and Catherine Keener, completing the cast brilliantly.

Emmy-nominated director, Julian Farino (Entourage, The Office), makes his feature debut here, directing from a script co-written by Ian Helfer and Jay Reiss.

The Oranges will be released in the UK this Friday, 7th December, having already been released in the US two months ago. Whilst we await its release on our shores, here’s the brilliant new clip to give you a taste of what to expect. Enjoy.
