Watch the trailer for 'The Land of Steady Habits' starring Ben Mendelsohn, Edie Falco, Thomas Mann, and Connie Britton
Ben Mendelsohn finally gets his moment in Netflix's 'The Land of Steady Habits', directed by Nicole Holofcener
Netflix has released the trailer for 'The Land Of Steady Habits' starring Ben Mendelsohn, Edie Falco, Thomas Mann, and Connie Britton.
Directed by Nicole Holofcener, the film follows Anders Hill (Ben Mendelsohn), who tries to find meaning in his life by quitting his job in finance and leaving his wife (Edie Falco) only to discover that he spends his days feeling lost and disappointed. However, he’s quickly faced with the startling reality of his choices; he spends his days looking for things to decorate his empty shelves, sleeping with strangers and feeling terribly lost.
Missing his ex-wife and on the outs with his troubled 27-year-old son played by Thomas Mann, Anders befriends a drug-addicted teen played by Charlie Tahan, sending him down a path of reckless and of deeply regrettable behavior. His shameful actions cause him to question who he is as a father and, ultimately, who he is as a person.
Holofcener who is known for her movies Enough Said, Friends with Money, and Lovely and Amazing, brings us a drama about parenting, loss and the consequences of our self-destructive behavior.
Holofcener's story features a deeply flawed male protagonist whose tragic mistakes impact and inform the complex relationships in his life. Far from a recognizable tale of a middle-aged rake in crisis, this is an emotionally resonant portrait of a fractured family explored Holofcener.
Adapting her screenplay from Ted Thompson’s 2014 novel, the movie also stars Connie Britton, Elizabeth Marve, and Bill Camp. 'The Land of Steady Habits' will begin streaming on Netflix on September 14.
