Indie films sure love family dramas set in isolated locales – and today we bring you a new trailer for a film that fits right into that mold.
In Our Nature looks to be following the bittersweet formula to a T in this new clip – and while the tale of a father and son (and their significant others) bumping into each other at a remote cabin seems pretty familiar, we’re still interested in seeing the finished feature. The cast alone, including Mad Men’s John Slattery and The Hunger Games’ Jena Malone makes this clip worth a look.
Here’s a plot breakdown for the project followed by the trailer.
When Brooklynite Seth (Zach Gilford, Friday Night Lights) takes his girlfriend Andie (Jena Malone, Into the Wild, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) to his family's weekend house in upstate New York for a romantic getaway, they are unexpectedly joined by his estranged father Gil (John Slattery, Mad Men), and his much-younger new girlfriend, Vicky (Gabrielle Union, 10 Things I Hate About You). The women carefully negotiate emotional minefields as they persuade father and son to share the house for the first time since the summer vacations of Seth's childhood. This unexpected family reunion in the great outdoors, fraught with tensions old and new, pushes them all to realize the bonds of family are always stronger and stranger than expected. From the producers of Meek’s Cutoff and Wendy and Lucy, In Our Nature is an earnest, delicately observed family portrait of couples at a crossroads.
