Last month, we applauded Reese Witherspoon for helping to rejuvenate the atrophied romantic-comedy genre with “Home Again,” the directorial debut of Nancy Meyers’ daughter. Now, the movie’s first trailer is here, fulfilling every rom-com expectation one can dream of.
Witherspoon plays a newly divorced mother who invites three aspiring filmmakers (Pico Alexander, Nat Wolff and Jon Rudnitsky) to crash in her guest house. Naturally, a tangled web of romance blossoms, and then her ex-husband (Michael Sheen) re-enters the picture. So many young hot men, what’s a newly 40-year-old woman to do?
“Home Again,” written and directed by Hallie Meyers-Shyer, opens in September.
