Hugh Laurie gets a piece of Leighton Meester in the red band trailer for The Oranges
The thought of my dad getting with one of my friends creeps me out. But watching the same scenario play out in a movie is kind of amusing. This is exactly what THE ORANGES is about.
Two families who have been friends for a long time wind up in a rather awkward situation. Hugh Laurie "falls" for the daughter (Leighton Meester) of the other family. Everyone finds out. The two then want to be taken more seriously as a couple rather than just blown off as a "mid-life crisis" sort of thing. Hilarity ensues.
The cast is a great one featuring Laurie, Meester, Catherine Keener, Allison Janney, Oliver Platt, Adam Brody and Alia Shawkat. THE ORANGES will open to a limited release on October 5th. This is one I definitely have to see.
The enduring friendship between the Walling and Ostroff families is tested when Nina, the prodigal Ostroff daughter, returns home for the holidays after a five-year absence and enters into an affair with David, head of the Walling family.
