Adam Scott And Amy Poehler Star In “A.C.O.D.,” Out Tomorrow
Nearly forty-five percent of American marriages are projected to end in divorce. It’s sad, it’s unfortunate, but it’s true: failed marriages are a major theme in our current social age. In “A.C.O.D.,” Adam Scott stars as Carter, an A.C.O.D. himself, who must revisit the chaos and confusion of his parents’ bitter separation fifteen years prior when his younger brother decides to get married only to discover that his former therapist, played by Jane Lynch, wasn’t a therapist at all, but a researcher studying the effects of divorce on children … but what of the adult children of divorce, the product of the least-parented generation ever? Director Stuart Zicherman’s debut production also stars Richard Jenkins and Catherine O’Hara as Carter’s parents, Amy Poehler as his stepmother (Dad’s wife #3), and Jessica Alba as his love interest. The promising cast is just the beginning — the trailer in and of itself is at once funny and touching, realistic and poignant. A must see!
