New Trailer for Peep World Starring Sarah Silverman, Michael C. Hall, and Rainn Wilson
Posted 02.02.11 by Ryan
Director Barry Blaustein's upcoming Peep World isn't the first movie about a dysfunctional family, but it is the first to cast Michael C. Hall, Sarah Silverman, and Rainn Wilson as siblings driven to the brink by their youngest brother's (Ben Schwartz) tell-all book airing the family's dirty secrets. Hall plays the responsible one in the family, while Silverman plays an unemployed actress, Wilson is the black sheep, and Schwartz is their father's favorite.
IFC has released an official trailer for the movie, which is finally opening in March after failing to make an impact when it debuted at the Toronto Film Festival last year. The impressive ensemble also includes Taraji P. Henson, Judy Greer, and Ron Rifkin.
Here's the movie's official synopsis.
On the seventieth birthday of their hard charging businessman father (Ron Rifkin), four siblings and their extended relatives make plans to reunite for dinner to celebrate the momentous occasion, despite an unshakable animosity towards one another that’s about to come to a blistering boil. The youngest sibling, Nathan (Ben Schwarz), has just published a bestselling and revealing exposé about their family's most intimate and shameful exploits, and no one is happy about it except himself.
In spite of his insurmountable financial woes, Jack (Michael C. Hall) is a semi-responsible husband and hard-working professional who is starting to feel the choke hold of his impending fatherhood. His brother Joel (Rainn Wilson) is doing the best he can to stay alive in the face of perpetual unemployment and a pair of loan sharks following his every move. Their sister Cheri (Sarah Silverman) is just plain pissed off at everyone, especially Nathan, who, along with his book, has become the lightning rod for her every neurotic complaint. Making matters worse, the movie adaptation of Nathan's book is currently in the works and their father's new girlfriend (Alicia Witt) has been cast in the role of Cheri.
