The very able young Keir Gilchrist of The United States of Tara gets a starring vehicle from the co-directors of Half Nelson. It’s largely because of that film that I trust them to not make this into disposable mainstream twaddle. And from looking at the respective trailers, I’m more excited about this than the other more higher-profile Zach Galifianakis vehicle that co-stars Robert Downey Jr. and hits later in the fall. Galifianakis is much more interesting to me when he’s half reined-in and allowed to play in between than when he’s just completely allowed to let go off the deep end. A strong supporting cast features the likes of Lauren Graham, Viola Davis, Jeremy Davies, and for any fellow Obies out there, Daniel London. The trailer also features the exceedingly catchy ditty Oh My God by Ida Maria.
