We have added a new set of hight resolution photos from the upcoming indie comedy Our Idiot Brother. The film is directed by Jesse Peretz and starring Paul Rudd, Elizabeth Banks, Zooey Deschanel, and Emily Mortimer. The script was written by Evegenia Peretz and DavidSchisgall 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.Synopsis: Ned Rochlin (Rudd) looks for the good in every situation and in everyone, which often puts him at odds with the world around him – especially his family. Upon being released from jail for a stupid mistake, Ned is kicked off of the organic farm he lives and works on by his ex-girlfriend Janet (Hahn) who also insists on keeping his beloved dog, Willie Nelson. Having nowhere else to go, he turns to his family, three ambitious sisters (Banks, Deschanel, Mortimer) and an overbearing mother (Knight). Ned crashes at each of their homes, in succession, and brings honesty, happiness and a sunny disposition into their lives. In other words, he wreaks havoc.
Our Idiot Brother, premiered earlier this year at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival, will open in theaters on August 26th, 2011.
