Here are some official stills from the sex-addict dramedy Thanks for Sharing with Ruffalo and Paltrow
Some official stills have surfaced for the dramedy THANKS FOR SHARING, starring Mark Ruffalo, Gwyneth Paltrow, Tim Robbins, Patrick Fugit, Joely Richardson, Josh Gad, and Alecia "Pink" Moore. The film is about recovering sex addicts and is the directorial debut of Stuart Blumberg, the co-writer of THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT, the Oscar nominated dramedy also starring Ruffalo.
There's quiet a few things that spark my interest with this project: Ruffalo, hot off THE AVENGERS, is quickly becoming a highly respected actor and deserving of the spotlight; Paltrow, who I still find unbelievably sexy (see her scene with Tony Stark in THE AVENGERS) and, of course, the topic of sex, which in this case may have some more negative connotations, but still...everyone likes sex, right?
All right, here are some non-sexual images from a movie about sex addicts:
And here's the official synopsis:
From the Academy Award nominated writer of The Kids are All Right, Thanks for Sharing is a touching and unpredictable comedy that follows three sex addicts as they struggle to function in society while maintaining meaningful relationships. Along the way, Adam (Ruffalo) attempts to forge a relationship with Phoebe(Paltrow), a wildly independent and beautiful woman who has sworn off dating addicts after breaking up with an alcoholic. Mike (Robbins) is married to his high school sweetheart, but becomes as addicted to his 12 step recovery program as he does to sex. Neil(Gad), on the other hand, hides a camera on his tennis shoe to secretly film up women’s skirts – all while trying to convince his friends that he can live a life without sex. Throughout the film, they each deal with their addictions in different and hilarious ways in this unusual and sweet comedy.
THANKS FOR SHARING will likely hit the fall festival circuit with a release date to follow. Stay tuned for more.
|Extra Tidbit:||I thought that The Kids Are All Right was a great flick that explored relationships in a deep and candid way. Well worth a watch if you've never seen it.|
