“I have no idea what to say to this guy?!” Netflix has unveiled the trailer for a sweet new romantic comedy called Your Place or Mine, marking the feature directorial debut of screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna. She is an acclaimed writer, creator of the series “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend”, as well as the scripts for The Devil Wears Prada, 27 Dresses, Morning Glory, We Bought a Zoo, and Annie, now she’s directing her first film. Debbie and Peter are best friends and total opposites. She craves routine with her son in LA; he thrives on change in NYC. When they swap houses and lives for a week they discover what they think they want might not be what they really need. This sounds a lot like The Holiday, but more about the long-distance romance than the Christmas-themed vibes. Reese Witherspoon stars with Ashton Kutcher, and a cast including Jesse Williams, Zoë Chao, Wesley Kimmel, Griffin Matthews, Shiri Appleby, Rachel Bloom, Vella Lovell, with Tig Notaro & Steve Zahn. This looks really good! Will be watching it when it arrives.
Here’s the official trailer (+ poster) for Aline Brosh McKenna’s Your Place or Mine, direct from YouTube:
“Through the years, with every romantic comedy that I thought about doing, I would always ask if Reese was available. I’ve wanted to work with her my entire career. And so, when I was approached about this film, I immediately said, Yes.” –Ashton Kutcher
