Here is the movie poster for Larry Crowne starring and directed by Tom Hanks. The film also stars Julia Roberts, Bryan Cranston, Cedric the Entertainer and Taraji P. Henson. Check out the trailer for the film here. I enjoy Hanks in dramatic roles, but really love him when he returns to his comedic roots. This looks to be a mix of both comedy and drama, so it is a win-win situation for me. If you have not seen The Man With One Red Shoe, I highly recommend it.

Here's the Synopsis:
Until he was downsized, affable, amiable Larry Crowne was a superstar team leader at the big-box company where he's worked since his time in the Navy. Underwater on his mortgage and unclear on what to do with his suddenly free days, Larry heads to his local college to start over. There he becomes part of a colorful community of outcasts, also-rans and the overlooked all trying to find a better future for themselves... often moving around town in a herd of scooters. In his public-speaking class, Larry develops an unexpected crush on his teacher Mercedes Tainot, who has lost as much passion for teaching as she has for her husband.
The simple guy who has every reason to think his life has stalled will come to learn an unexpected lesson: when you think everything worth having has passed you by, you just might discover your reason to live.
Larry Crowne arrives in theaters on July 1st.
