The Weinstein Company has released a great new trailer for an upcoming dark comedy called The Details which stars Tobey Maguire and Elizabeth banks. The story follows a struggling married couple who's lives become even more complicated by a pack of ravenous raccoons burrowing under the sod in their back yard.
Here's the synopsis:
It all started with the raccoons. After 10 years of marriage, Jeff and Nealy have a young son, an idyllic suburban life, and a marriage that’s stuck. Accordingly, Jeff decides to plant a perfect backyard lawn. Enter the raccoons, who repeatedly tear up his grass. When Jeff tries to eradicate these meddlesome vandals, his efforts initiate a bewildering chain reaction involving a crazy cat lady, multiple infidelities, extortion, organ donation, and somebody on the wrong end of a bow and arrow.
Devilish throughout, The Details is both a love story and a horror story (of the existential kind). The root of Jeff’s dread (and subsequent misdeeds) is that he wants to love his wife but no longer knows how. Filmmaker Jacob Aaron Estes plays with the notion that the tiniest thing can unravel our lives. His narrative spontaneity and anarchic spirit allow characters to keep digging themselves into deeper moral holes to see if the universe will punish them. The result is a darkly funny meditation on marital malaise.
The movie was written and directed by Jacob Estes, and also stars Laura Linney, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert and Kerry Washington. There's no release date set yet for the movie, but it looks like it will be entertaining. Check out the trailer!
