Today we have a new trailer and two posters for comedic drama Bringing Up Bobby, a quirky story of family, identity, and faith that isn’t afraid to show that life can get muddled. And when it does, there usually aren’t easy answers to all of the questions.
The film stars Milla Jovovich, Marcia Cross, Spencer List, and Bill Pullman.
Here’s the official synopsis
In an effort to escape her murky past and build a better future, Olive (Milla Jovovich), a nomadic European con-artist, and her 10-year-old American-born son, Bobby (Spencer List), find themselves living in Oklahoma. As her top priority, Olive seeks to give Bobby the things she never had: she enrolls him in school, makes him do his homework and tries her hardest to be a good mother, and with the help of an old friend from Oklahoma, Walt (Rory Cochrane), Olive “provides” for Bobby in the only way she knows how. But despite of her efforts (or perhaps because of them) Bobby displays troubling behavior both at his school and in their conservative neighborhood. Things take a turn for the worse after Bobby’s unfortunate “run-in” with the local and wealthy businessman Kent (Bill Pullman), and Olive’s criminal past finally catches up with her, forcing her to make the toughest judgment of all.
Bringing Up Bobby, which is set for a September 28th, 2012 release date, is helmed by first-time director Famke Janssen.
