He was one of the symbolic faces of American independent cinema of the first decade of the 2000s, having starred in films such as Juno, Nick & Norah – It all happened in one night, Youth in Revolt, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. We then saw him sour his public image in two beautiful films by Sebastian Silva Crystal Fairy e Magic Magic. And lately he has significantly reduced his appearances on the screen.
But now Michael Cera34, is about to return to the scene: both in the cast of the upcoming and awaited Barbie by Greta Gerwig, and – in the USA, at least – a new indie film which is entitled The Adultsof which we show you the first original trailer below.
Presented at the Berlinale and the Tribeca Film Festival The Adultswhich will debut in the US in August, was written and directed by Dustin Guy Time, and tells the story of a young man who returns to his hometown after years of absence, and who is forced to come to terms with how time and distance have changed his relationships with his two sisters and the friends of a life. In the cast, in addition to Cera, there are also Hannah Gross e Sophia Lilliswho play the protagonist’s sisters.
Here is the original trailer and the story of The Adults.
The Adults tells the story of Eric (Cera) who returns home for a quick visit and finds himself caught between reuniting with his sisters and wanting revenge with his old poker crew. As the stay lengthens, it becomes increasingly difficult for Eric to avoid confrontations and revelations, while the carefully constructed facade of his adulthood gives way to old childhood conflicts. As Maggie (Lillis) tries to recreate the intimate world the three siblings once shared, Eric and Rachel (Gross) grapple with the gap between who they were as children and the adults they are now.
