Jane Fonda grounds Tina Fey, Jason Bateman in the first This is Where I Leave You trailer

MUMBAI: Warner Bros. recently released the first trailer of its upcoming ensemble family drama, This is Where I Leave You starring Academy Award winner Jane Fonda (Coming Home) and Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Tina Fey (30 Rock).


This Is Where I Leave You is directed by Shawn Levy (Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb) and is based on the book of the same name by Jonathan Tropper, who also wrote the film's screenplay.


The film revolves around the death of Judd Foxman’s father which marks the first time that the entire Foxman family-including Judd’s mother, brothers, and sister-have been together in years. Conspicuously absent is Judd’s wife, Jen, whose fourteen-month affair with Judd’s radio-shock-jock boss has recently become painfully public.


Simultaneously mourning the death of his father and the demise of his marriage, Judd joins the rest of the Foxmans as they reluctantly submit to their patriarch’s dying request: to spend the seven days following the funeral together; in the same house; like a family.


As the week quickly spins out of control, longstanding grudges resurface, secrets are revealed, and old passions reawakened.  For Judd, it’s a weeklong attempt to make sense of the mess his life has become while trying in vain not to get sucked into the regressive battles of his madly dysfunctional family. All of which would be hard enough without the bomb Jen dropped the day Judd’s father died: She’s pregnant.


This Is Where I Leave You is considered to be Jonathan Tropper’s most accomplished work to date, a riotously funny and an emotionally raw novel about love, marriage, divorce, family, and the ties that bind them, whether they like it or not.


The film also stars Golden Globe award winner Jason Bateman (Arrested Development) as Judd Foxman, Emmy Award nominees Adam Driver (Girls) and Timothy Olyphant (Justified), Golden Globe Award nominees Corey Stoll (House of Cards), Connie Britton (Nashville) and Rose Bryne (Damages). Ben Schwartz (House of Lies) and Dax Shephard (Parenthood) round up the ensemble cast.


This is Where I Leave You releases in India on 26 September, 2014.
