The Weinstein Company has released a new (cast) poster for Jesse Peretz
’s new comedy Our Idiot Brother
, starring Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel,
and Emily Mortimer
. The script was written by Evegenia Peretz
based on Jesse and Evgenia Peretz’s story, and tells of an idealistic man who intrudes and wreaks havoc in each of his three sisters’ lives.
Here is the official synopsis:
Every family has one: the sibling who is always just a little bit behind the curve when it comes to getting his life together. For sisters Liz (Emily Mortimer), Miranda (Elizabeth Banks) and Natalie (Zooey Deschanel), that person is their perennially upbeat brother Ned (Paul Rudd), an erstwhile organic farmer whose willingness to rely on the honesty of mankind is a less-than-optimum strategy for a tidy, trouble-free existence. Ned may be utterly lacking in common sense, but he is their brother and so, after his girlfriend dumps him and boots him off the farm, his sisters once again come to his rescue. As Liz, Miranda and Natalie each take a turn at housing Ned, their brother’s unfailing commitment to honesty creates more than a few messes in their comfortable routines. But as each of their lives begins to unravel, Ned’s family comes to realize that maybe, in believing and trusting the people around him; Ned isn’t such an idiot after all.
Our Idiot Brother
premiered earlier this year at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival and will open in theaters on August 26th, 2011. [source: HitFix
